Last night, he won the award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) for “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” last night at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards – meaning he now has won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony award – adding him to a list of only 14 others to achieve EGOT status.

Joining the ranks with John were Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, who also worked with him on the production.

And you know his wife, Chrissy Teigen, couldn’t wait to share her excitement with the world (which is why I LOVE THESE TWO)!!

Now, not only did John gain access into this super exclusive group of people who have won all four major academy awards, he’s also…

  • The youngest person to ever do it…
  • The first African American man to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony…
  • The second fastest to ever achieve ‘EGOT’ status (it took him only 15 years after winning his first Grammy)

And in true John Legend and Chrissy Teigen style…they celebrated afterwards with ‘EGOT Pancakes.’
