Guillermo just added another gig to his resume.

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live" sidekick (full name Guillermo Rodriguez) has topped himself this time by landing a spot as a backup dancer in Gwen Stefani's Las Vegas residency at the Zappos Theater.

"We got word that she's in need of dancers for the show," Jimmy Kimmel explained to his audience in Monday's episode. "It's a big show and it requires big talent and when the notice went out, we sent in the biggest little ball of talent we know to try out to be part of the 'Just a Girl' tour."

Guillermo then showed up to audition in a glittering gold tank top that read "Rich Girl" and handed the singer a banana.

"Honey, I don't audition. I'm a legend," he told Stefani.

When he bombed, he told her, "I'm dancing like no one is watching."

"You should dance like everyone is watching," she replied.

Watching him defeated, Stefani had a change of heart and added him to her team, giving him a role as a living, breathing banana in her show.

Just watch him sing "Hollaback Girl."

"Gwen Stefani -- Just A Girl," runs through November.
