John Legend reaches EGOT status after winning Emmy for 'Jesus Christ Superstar'

Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert

Some other key figures to win awards at the same level include Rita Moreno, Helen Hayes, John Gielgud, Whoopi Goldberg, and more. While he's most known for the incredible music he creates, he's also taken a few turns producing and acting in shows like Underground as Frederick Douglass and in NBC's live musical concert event for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.

But John isn't the only new member of the EGOT hall of fame, with both of his "Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert" co-producers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice also reaching the status thanks to their win last night.

And finally, Legend is the second EGOT'er who is primarily a musician, behind only Hamlisch.

"EGOT" stands for the big four awards in the entertainment industry: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

"Being a part of Jesus Christ Superstar was one of my favourite experiences in my career", Legend said in a statement following the nominations. His wife, Chrissy Teigen, posted on Twitter a picture of Webber, Legend, and Rice, holding up their respective awards.

Meanwhile, I'll be waiting for Viola Davis to record an audio version of an Oprah's Book Club selection so she can cruise to a Grammy and her own much-deserved EGOT. That year, composer Robert Lopez, 43, completed his EGOT quest.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice never did a song with Common. But their bid for EGOT status was derailed when the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics went to "Saturday Night Live" and their song "Come Back Barack" when Chance the Rapper was hosting. He was the subject of a Grammy Awards tribute, and winter Olympic fans would have noticed Lloyd Webber soundtracks for several skaters. The remainder of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards winners will be announced on Monday, September 17 on NBC.
