John Legend becomes first black man to get the EGOT status

Date:

Singer John Legend has become the youngest person to join the elite group of EGOT (Emmys, Grammys, Oscars and Tonys) winners, people who have at least one trophy from each of the major US-based entertainment awards.

The ‘All of Me’ singer achieved EGOT status at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys when he won an award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. He has also become the first black man to receive all four awards in competitive categories.

Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, took to Twitter to express her joy for her husband. She shared a photo of Legend with fellow Jesus Christ Superstar producers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and captioned “EGOT GOATS.”
