John Legend just made history for being the youngest and first African-American to score himself an EGOT! (FYI, an EGOT stands for the big four awards in the industry: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony).  He won an Emmy for Jesus Christ Superstar.

John shared the news on Instagram with the caption, “Before tonight, only 12 people had won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony in competitive categories. Sirs Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice and I joined that group when we won an Emmy for our production of their legendary show Jesus Christ Superstar. So happy to be part of this team. So honored they trusted me to play Jesus Christ. So amazed to be in such rarefied air. #EGOT

 

 

Such a HUGE deal! So of course, his wife Chrissy Teigen is super excited for him!

But don’t worry, she didn’t hold back with the Arthur reference either… She posted this video of John placing his new Emmy on his awards shelf with the caption: “And I say Hey, what a wonderful kind of day.”
