After winning an Emmy for "Jesus Christ Superstar", he admitted he never thought about becoming an EGOT victor, and bragged about his wife's endless love and support!

Legend is the first black man to win an EGOT, though Whoopi Goldberg became the first black person to win an EGOT in 2002, when she won an Emmy.

John Legend could also win another award at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday, where he is up for outstanding actor in a limited series or movie. But I never actually dreamed of winning an EGOT.

The Creative Arts Emmys are one night a year, but Arthur memes are forever.

The singer-songwriter has an impressive ten Grammy awards, one Academy Award - won in 2015 for Best Original Song, "Glory", from Selma - one Tony Award - won in 2017 for Best Revival of a Play, Jitney - and now he's added the Emmy to the list.

Legend's wife, model Chrissy Teigen, celebrated her husband's honor on Twitter as well. "And we support each other fully in everything we do".

Teigen and Legend socialized with fellow Creative Arts Emmys winners, which she documented on Instagram.

The singer and actor won an Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, along with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, for producing the best variety special victor, "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert".

John Legend played the role of Jesus Christ in the live television program that aired on NBC in April. Just from producers to choreographers to director to lighting. "I couldn't be more proud of what we all did together and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to do this".

Throughout his career, Legend has won 10 Grammys Awards.
