The singer took home a Creative Arts Emmys award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert on Sunday night, making him an EGOT victor!

Legends' career has been illustrious, he has picked up 10 Grammy awards. Legend - who is also up for an acting Emmy for playing the title role in the NBC production - and fellow producers Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber all received Emmys for their work.

Legend (birth name John Stephens) is the fifteenth person to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony, the first black man and second-youngest victor after composer Robert Lopez (Lopez and Legend each achieved the EGOT at age 39, but Lopez had just turned 39 when he won EGOTted in 2014, while Legend's 40th birthday is in December).

The musical's win for best live variety special united Legend, Lloyd Webber and Rice with Emmys to go along with their Tonys, Grammys and Oscars - the four biggest prizes in show business. So happy to be part of this team. So honoured they trusted me to play Jesus Christ. "My fingers are crossed and if it happens, I'm very excited about the possibility". He did all those at just 39 years old.

Legend's wife, model Chrissy Teigen, celebrated her husband's honor on Twitter as well.

So, now that Legend, Rice and Lloyd Webber now EGOT status, does that mean they also get a diamond-encrusted chain?

Lopez has actually won each award at least two times.
