John Legend achieves EGOT status, the youngest person to do so

Emmy Awards 2018 The nominees

Legend, Webber and Rice won their Emmy for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, which was awarded the best variety special victor at Sunday night's Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Throughout his career, Legend has won 10 Grammys Awards.

John Legend became the first black man and one of the youngest people to win an EGOT, an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award. Legend - who is also up for an acting Emmy for playing the title role in the NBC production - and fellow producers Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber all received Emmys for their work.

With the award, Legend became just the 13th person ever to earn an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony), and he did so before the age of 40.

Broadway icon Andrew Lloyd Webber, singer John Legend and lyricist Tim Rice all joined the exclusive EGOT club on Sunday night with a Creative Arts Emmy win. So happy to be part of this team.

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert" beat out the telecasts of the Grammys, the Oscars and the Golden Globe, as well as the benefit show "Night of Too Many Stars" on HBO. "Even if it doesn't happen this year, if we do more on TV, it could happen another time, but this is probably the best shot I'll have for awhile". Lopez is still technically the youngest-ever victor, as he was 39 years, 6 months, 3 days old when he won.

John now joins the ranks of other EGOT icons like Audrey Hepburn, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Whoopi Goldberg, and Mel Brooks.
