With Emmy win, John Legend joins rare EGOT class

Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert

Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert

John Legend is many things: former management consultant, husband to Chrissy Teigen, father to Luna and Miles, and caring friend to Kanye West. Composer and theatre living legend Andrew Lloyd Webber received an Emmy, as did lyricist Tim Rice.

John Legend is living up to his name, becoming the first African-American man to join the prestigious EGOT club.

"EGOT" stands for the big four awards in the entertainment industry: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

Texas Rangers Investigating Apartment Shooting Involving Dallas Police Officer
The Texas Rangers, a state-wide law enforcement agency, will conduct an independent investigation of the shooting. The officer called 911 and Jean was transported to a local hospital where he died, police said .

The "All of Me" singer has 10 Grammys from his music career and a Tony for best play revival as a co-producer of "Jitney".

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert" beat out the telecasts of the Grammys, the Oscars and the Golden Globe, as well as the benefit show "Night of Too Many Stars" on HBO. "But it's ok I AM SO PROUD!" she wrote. At 39, he is the youngest person to ever do so and he is also the first black man to do it as well.

So, now that Legend, Rice and Lloyd Webber now EGOT status, does that mean they also get a diamond-encrusted chain?

Other entertainers to have reached EGOT status include Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Brooks and Audrey Hepburn.

When the Creative Arts Emmy Award nominations were announced in July, Teigen predicted Legend would win and joked she'd have to move her own Spike TV Award to make way for an Emmy statuette, but the Glory hitmaker insisted that won't be necessary. The caption is a lyric from the children's show's theme song. Lopez still holds the record for only taking 10 years to complete it and is also the only "double EGOT" victor, since he has more than one of every award. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards honor excellence in Television technical categories such as makeup, casting direction, costume design, editing and cinematography.
