Published Sep 10, 2018He's drawn comparisons to Arthur and voiced Google Assistant, but now John Legend can add EGOT winner to his list of accomplishments.
Last night (September 9), the singer took home a Creative Arts Emmy Award, making him the recipient of an impressive Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. At 39 years old, he is the youngest person to achieve all four showbiz honours.
Legend co-produced and starred as the title character in NBC's live musical Jesus Christ Superstar, which took home the trophy for Best Live Variety Special. His co-producer role nabbed him last night's award, though he's also nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie at the upcoming 70th Emmy Awards.
Legend had previously won 10 Grammys, an Oscar for his 2015 Selma song "Glory" and a Tony for Best Revival of a Play as a co-producer for Jitney.
The Jesus Christ Superstar win at the Creative Arts Emmys also bumped Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice into the esteemed EGOT-winners category. The composer and writer team previously won Tonys for Evita and Sunset Boulevard, Grammys for Cats and Evita, and an Oscar for "You Must Love Me" from Evita.
Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen praised all three on their accomplishments on Instagram, calling the trio "EGOT GOATS" in the caption. She also shared a video of Legend placing his newly earned Emmy on the shelf with the rest of his trophies. See the proud moments below.
