But their bid for EGOT status was derailed when the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics went to "Saturday Night Live" and their song "Come Back Barack" when Chance the Rapper was hosting.

Huge news for John Legend, as today, he finally managed to win an Emmy award thereby giving him an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony - otherwise known as the illustrious "EGOT" which is often considered hitting the pinnacle of success within the entertainment industry.

John Legend must be on cloud nine because as of right now, he is part of the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) club.

The singer struck gold at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmys, where Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert was named Outstanding Variety Special.

The SD has argued that the high number of migrants taken in by Sweden is driving up crime and putting the welfare system at risk. The Swedish government allowed 163,000 migrants into the country with a population of 10 million in 2015.

John Legend now has an EGOT in his kitty, becoming the youngest person to have the prestigious quartet of awards.

"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. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice never did a song with Common.

John is the second fastest to complete the feat, doing so in 12 years - just two years' shy of composer Robert Lopez's record.

Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, Gielgud, Audrey Hepburn, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Tunick, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols, Goldberg, Scott Rudin and Lopez are the first dozen EGOT winners. So amazed to be in such rarefied air.
