John Legend achieves EGOT status

Washington: Singer John Legend has become the youngest person to become an official EGOT winner.

An EGOT winner is someone who has bagged an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award.

The 39-year-old took home his first Emmy on Sunday at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys for his role as a producer of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert’, which won outstanding live variety special at the ceremony, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The ‘All of Me’ hitmaker has a whopping 10 Grammy Awards to his name and in 2015, he won the Oscar for Best Original Song for ‘Glory,’ which was featured in the movie ‘Selma’. Legend took home a Tony Award in 2017 as the co-producer of ‘Jitney’, which won for Best Revival of a Play.

His wife, television host and model Chrissy Teigen, took to Twitter to express her happiness. She shared a picture of Legend, along with his fellow JCS producers Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, who have also become members of the prestigious EGOT club.
