John Legend Adds EGOT Emmy to His Trophy Wall — and Chrissy Teigen Can't Resist an Arthur Joke
Legend has won multiple Grammys, an Oscar, a Tony and now an Emmy
John Legend is going to need a bigger wall.
The Emmy, which Legend won at the Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday for co-producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live, made him one of the youngest EGOT winners ever, according to CNN. He is the first African-American man to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.
When a fan asked what the R trophy indicated, Teigen first wrote, “youR mom,” before adding, “jk it’s my revolve award because I’m a loser.”

Legend told Entertainment Tonight about his excitement on Sunday. “It’s kind of surreal. It’s something I never even thought about when I started my career,” he said.
He continued, “I probably wanted to win some Grammys and sell a lot of records, and all that started happening pretty quickly, but I never dreamed that I would be here, winning an Emmy, and being in that rare group of people that have won all four of these major [awards].”
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, who produced Jesus Christ Superstar Live alongside Legend, also became EGOTs with the win. Teigen shared a picture of the trio and said, “EGOT GOATS.”
Legend has nabbed 10 Grammys, an Oscar in 2015 for his song “Glory” in Selma and a Tony in 2017 for his work as co-producer of Jitney.
