John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice now EGOT winners

Adjust Comment Print

John Legend is many things: former management consultant, husband to Chrissy Teigen, father to Luna and Miles, and caring friend to Kanye West.

Legend wasn't the only one to clinch EGOT status - composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice also scored their Emmys for their work on the NBC special.

The "Ordinary People" singer on Sunday won the Creative Arts Emmys for his role in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert".

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

The singer and actor won an Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, along with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, for producing the best variety special victor, "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert".

The 39-year-old performer already took home an Oscar in 2015 for his contribution to the "Selma" soundtrack, a Tony for co-producing a Broadway revival of "Jitney" and a total of 10 Grammys, including the prestigious Best New Artist honour. So honored they trusted me to play Jesus Christ.

There are only thirteen people in history to have achieved such a feat.

Jack Ma will step down from his role on Monday - his 54th birthday - and plans to devote his time to philanthropy and education. Ma, who turns 54 on Monday, now oversees a number of charitable projects in education and environmental fields.

Her caption read, "And I say hey, what a wonderful kind of day" - a not-so-thinly-veiled reference to the theme song for the TV show Arthur.

All genuine happiness aside, she's still Chrissy Teigen, so she continued her celebration of Legend's win the only way she knows how: by playfully roasting him.

"BIG CONGRATS TO JOHN LEGEND BECOMING THE FIRST BLACK MAN TO COMPLETE THE EGOT!" crowed Chance the Rapper.

The elite group of winners includes Robert Lopez, Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, Rita Moreno, Mike Nichols and Whoopi Goldberg.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice never did a song with Common.

On Sunday, John Legend became another star to earn the legendary EGOT status, after he secured a victory at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
