John Legend achieves EGOT status, the youngest person to do so

Posted September 11, 2018

epa07009547 Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (L), American singer-songwriter John Legend (C) and author Tim Rice (R) hold their Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special for "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" during the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, USA, 09 September 2018.

"Being a part of Jesus Christ Superstar was one of my favourite experiences in my career", Legend said in a statement following the nominations.

This win meant that he joined an exclusive club of performers who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. He is 39 years old and the first black man to win the EGOT. So amazed to be in such rarefied air.

John won a Tony award in 2017 for Best Revival Of A Play for his producing work on Jitney; while he and Common won the 2015 Oscar for Best Original Song for Glory, from the Selma soundtrack. "Even if it doesn't happen this year, if we do more on TV, it could happen another time, but this is probably the best shot I'll have for awhile".

Speaking with ET over the summer, Legend admitted it would be "pretty incredible" if he were to become an EGOT victor.

Obviously Teigen posted loving comments towards her husband for his win, but none are quite as good as the subtle but hilarious comment on the post.

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