John Legend Just Got An Emmy And Became The First Black Man To Get EGOT Status
What a legend.
At last night's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, John Legend took home a statue for his work in the production of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.
By winning this award, John has entered the small group of people who have EGOT status – that is, an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
He is the first black man to win an EGOT.
And despite what some people have been saying (including me, in an earlier version of this article), John isn't the youngest EGOT winner.
Fans are pretty damn excited.
Congrats, EGOT king.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post did Robert Lopez dirty, and cited John as the youngest EGOT winner.
