Only 12 people have ever received EGOT status… which means you have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar AND a Tony award. Last night at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys 3 other got added to that list; Sirs Andrew Lloyd Weber, Tim Rice, and everyone’s favorite.. JOHN LEGEND! He won an award for Outstanding Variety Special for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, and is also the first black man to achieve this status!
The quadruple threat took to Instagram to share his achievement with the world as well as his number one fan Chrissy Teigen (his hilarious wife). She posted a video of John adding his Emmy to the HUGE awards shelf he has in their home. YAY JOHN! Congrats!! Check out all the social media celebrating his big achievement below!

Before tonight, only 12 people had won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony in competitive categories. Sirs Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice and I joined that group when we won an Emmy for our production of their legendary show Jesus Christ Superstar. So happy to be part of this team. So honored they trusted me to play Jesus Christ. So amazed to be in such rarefied air. #EGOT
