EGOT status is when someone receives Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony . John Legend, 39 became the youngest one to achieve the status at the Creative Arts Emmy in Los Angeles. “Before tonight, only 12 people had won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony in competitive categories,” wrote Legend on Instagram.

He also became the first black man in this category. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice get EGOT status too, for producing best variety special winner Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.

“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,” Legend added.

“The one thing about this loss is it’s not ours alone, like everybody knew that guy,”  “Explore Parts Unknown” executive producer Nathan Thornburgh said. “Everybody had a selfie with him, but more importantly I think everyone felt like he had spoken to them over the years and that’s helped a lot, to feel like we’re not alone.”

Lydia Tenaglia accepted his and noted that, “Tony was nominated for this Emmy many times, but it had always eluded him. So it is with tremendous bittersweetness that I accept it on his behalf.”
