John Legend becomes the first black man to reach the EGOT status

John Legend has written history on Sunday night.

The singer and actor won an Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, along with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, for producing the best variety special winner, "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert."

The victory brought all three men into the exclusive EGOT club, which means they have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony – a collection of prizes won by only 12 other people, including Audrey Hepburn and Mel Brooks. won before they won during the week-end.

But the EGOT of Legend is especially remarkable, since he is the first black man to win all four prizes.

"Perfect," Teigen can be heard after Legend has placed its latest prize.

The two apparently also made some EGOT pancakes the next day – and gave a new meaning to the phrase "breakfast of champions."
