If you’re innate with a final name, Legend, we know that you’re unfailing for vital success. Luckily for John Legend, this is accurately a case. Other than being a unequivocally gifted musician, a amatory family masculine and an all-round good guy, Legend has now achieved EGOT status. If that wasn’t enough, he is also a initial black masculine and a youngest chairman to ever grasp this, so removing this endowment was like a triple whammy of success.
If we don’t know what a EGOT is, it’s an acronym for a words, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. John Legend has warranted all 4 of these prestigious awards, and now binds a same feat as some of a many iconic celebrities in history. Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks and Whoopie Goldberg, who was a initial black chairman to benefit this status, also have this pretension to their name, so we can see a turn of talent one contingency have to grasp this status.
Fans, family and friends are so unapproachable of Legend for achieving this, with many holding to Twitter to honour him on his success. Even his wife, Chrissy Teigen, posted a design of a 3 EGOT winners on a night (which enclosed Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice), titling a photo, ‘EGOT GOATS.’ The contingent any dull out their awards shelf with their unusual work for a TV display of Jesus Christ: Superstar where John Legend played Jesus Christ (Superstar).

Tonight, @johnlegend has assimilated a really disdainful club: EGOT! He is now a 13th chairman in story to competitively win an Oscar, Tony, Grammy, Emmy award. Other EGOTS embody Rita Moreno, Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Brooks. Also fasten him tonight, Andrew Lloyd Webber. The 14th EGOT

It took only 12 years from his initial Grammy for John Legend to get his EGOT. That’s a second fastest of all of a 16 winners. And he took home a Emmy, Oscar, and Tony in a 4 year span. What an implausible talent. https://t.co/TvSd88aSiZ

Honestly, if we are ever half as gifted as John Legend is, we would feel like a success. Pushing a vessel out a small further, if we ever got awarded a EGOT award, we wish that we could get a large necklace, a la 30 Rock’s Tracy Jordan, only uncover off how extraordinary we are.
