John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice now EGOT winners

John Legend's just added some new hardware to his trophy case: an Emmy to accompany his Oscar (2015 Best Original Song "Glory" from Selma), Tony (producing Jitney, victor of 2017's Best Revival of a Play), and 10 Grammys (countless hit songs).

But the celebration may continue as Legend, 39, who played Jesus in the musical, is also up for another trophy for outstanding actor in a limited series or movie at the Primetime Emmys next week.

John Legend has made history by becoming the first black man to reach EGOT status after his Emmy win on Sunday night.

Legend, 39, completed the acronym at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, as did Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, all for producing best variety special victor Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.

Watch a video below of the stars discussing the production and its wins!

He has won 10 Grammys, an Oscar, and a Tony.

ICC says it can rule on alleged crimes against Rohingya
Adilur Rahman Khan, vice-president of the International Federation for Human Rights, said in a statement . But across the border, Myanmar is outside its jurisdiction.

"Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert" aired on NBC in April and featured Legend, Alice Cooper, Sara Bareilles and Brandon Victor Dixon among the performers.

Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert beat out the telecasts of the Grammys, Oscars and Golden Globe, as well as the benefit show Night of Too Many Stars on HBO. So happy to be part of this team.

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

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

Lopez has actually won each award at least two times.
