The "Ordinary People" singer on Sunday won the Creative Arts Emmys for his role in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert".

Thus far, Legend has 10 Grammys to his name, an Oscar for Best Original Song for "Glory" (2015) and a co-producing Tony for Best Revival of a Play for the Broadway show "Jitney" (2017).

John Legend has achieved EGOT status, and he's the youngest person ever to do so.

John achieved EGOT status alongside fellow producers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

In case you're wondering what an EGOT is, it stands for Emmy-Grammy-Oscar-Tony and is basically considered the grand slam of modern entertainment awards.

What's more, he's also the first black man to take home all four trophies. So happy to be part of this team.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, who won alongside Legend in the same category, also became EGOT winners with the award.

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" received 13 Emmy nominations.

"It feels good to be on the brink [of that honor]", he said.

And Chrissy Teigen was one proud wife. Lopez is still technically the youngest-ever victor, as he was 39 years, 6 months, 3 days old when he won.

British actor John Gielgud is the oldest to win the award, as he was 87 when he completed the quad in 1991, nine years before his death.

He joins the ranks of Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks and Whoopi Goldberg, who is the first black woman to join the EGOT club.
