Gwen Stefani Pulls a John Travolta, Mispronounces 'The Colbert Report' at the Emmys

Umm...John Travolta Jr.?

Gwen Stefani made a flub similar to the actor's unforgettable Adele Dazeem moment when she messed up the pronunciation of the Colbert Report at the Emmys Monday night.

While presenting the award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series with Adam Levine, the No Doubt rocker opened up the envelope and announced the winner, saying with a big smile on her face "The Colebore Report!" Huh?

Adam leaned into the mic and corrected her, saying "The Colbert Report" with the correct pronunciation, but the damage had already been done.

Just in case anyone missed that moment, Jimmy Fallon made sure to call Gwen out for the flub when he jokingly walked on stage as Stephen Colbert and more folks from the Colbert Show headed up to accept their award.

Jimmy's show was nominated in the same category, so he took the mic and said Gwen pronounced the show's name wrong and that probably meant The Colbert Report didn't actually win. To rub it in even further, Jimmy delivered Stephen's acceptance speech for him, with Stephen whispering in his ear to tell him what to say. Yikes!

We wonder if Gwen will send Stephen some flowers a la John's apology gift to Idina Menzel.
