Legend, 39, won a Creative Arts Emmy last night for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live. And as of Sunday night, he's now an EGOT victor. Then John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Tim Rice won Emmys for NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert - Webber wrote the music, Rice the lyrics, and Legend produced the TV version of their musical - and became EGOTs No. 13, 14, and 15.

Legends' career has been illustrious, he has picked up 10 Grammy awards.

The couple also bought Mr Bobbitt a camper with some of the cash and parked it on land McClure's family owns in New Jersey. Officials with GoFundMe and Bobbitt's lawyer said Thursday that Bobbitt will get all the money donated to him.

Legend is the first African-American man to become an EGOT - the acronym used for an Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar, and Tony victor - according to Buzzfeed. He's also the first African-American man to win all four awards.

So, now that Legend, Rice and Lloyd Webber now EGOT status, does that mean they also get a diamond-encrusted chain? The 12 years it took him to complete it is the second-shortest span, after Lopez. Sirs Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice and I joined that group when we won an Emmy for our production of their legendary show Jesus Christ Superstar. So happy to be part of this team.

Lloyd Webber told The Associated Press that he never considered achieving an EGOT because he's rarely dealt with television, but wanted to credit his old friend and prolific co-producer Craig Zadan, who died this summer, with shepherding the project.

Legend is also nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his performance in Jesus Christ Superstar, which will be announced during the Primetime Emmy Awards on September 17th. Other notable EGOT winners include Mel Brooks, Rita Moreno, and Audrey Hepburn.
