John Legend joined a very limited organization after wining an Emmy for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert; connecting the final piece to being EGOT’d
The EGOT award is only given to those who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. Legend is 1 of 3 African Americans in total to EVER do this, along with Whoopi Goldberg and the iconic James Earl Jones.
Legend was shocked that this was even a possibility for him. “I truly never believed that I would be getting an EGOT when I started my career,” Legend said “I just wanted to sing songs that people loved and maybe win some Grammys. But the Oscars, the Tonys, the Emmys—this is pretty amazing.”
The Creative Art Emmys will air September 15th on FXX
