Legend, Webber and Rice won their Emmy for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, which was awarded the best variety special victor at Sunday night's Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

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).

Legend is the first black man to win an EGOT, though Whoopi Goldberg became the first black person to win an EGOT in 2002, when she won an Emmy. 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.

For those of you who don't know what an EGOT is, it's when a star wins one or multiple Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards, in no particular order. So happy to be part of this team.

Chrissy Teigen is gonna have to move her Revolve Award, because John Legend is officially a showbiz superstar. So honoured they trusted me to play Jesus Christ.

American musical songwriter Robert Lopez also received EGOT status, weeks after his 39th birthday in March 2014.

Chrissy Teigen crowns the best episode in TV history.

So, now that Legend, Rice and Lloyd Webber now EGOT status, does that mean they also get a diamond-encrusted chain? Legend was 39 years, 8 months and 13 days old.

Lopez has actually won each award at least two times.
