As for a breakdown of John's other awards.

The Creative Emmy Awards were held this week, and Legend managed to snag the award for 'Outstanding Variety Special (Live)' for his production role on Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert.

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

Chrissy Teigen - author, model, empress of Twitter and amateur entomologist - showered her husband with praise and snark on social media.

They became just the 13th, 14th, and 15th people in history to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, and Legend made history as the youngest to do so as well as the first black man. He collected his Toni Award in 2017 for Best Revival Of A Play for co-producing Jitney. Legend was awarded his first Emmy at the annual awards show for his work in Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert, and revealed that he had never in his wildest dreams thought an EGOT would eventually be added to his resume.

According to The New York Post, Legend won his Emmy for his role in the NBC musical Jesus Christ Superstar Live.

Legend could win a second trophy for his title role in "Superstar", when the Primetime Emmys take place on September 17 (NBC, 8 EDT/5 PDT). 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. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards honor excellence in Television technical categories such as makeup, casting direction, costume design, editing and cinematography.
