John Legend is the youngest person ever to earn EGOT status

So honored they trusted me to play Jesus Christ.

At the age of 39, the All Of Me singer has become the youngest ever person to achieve EGOT status - as well as being the first black man to do so.

On Sunday, John managed to scoop the final piece in the puzzle, picking up an Emmy for his work as a producer on the musical special "Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert". But I never actually dreamed of winning an EGOT.

And just in case you thought the Emmys had somehow passed you by, last night marked the Creative Arts Emmys, with the main ceremony set to take place this weekend.

SC emergency management officials said they were "preparing for the possibility of a large-scale disaster". The Met Office said Trinidad and Tobagi is not under any tropical storm watch or warning at this time.

Obviously Teigen posted loving comments towards her husband for his win, but none are quite as good as the subtle but hilarious comment on the post. "And we support each other fully in everything we do".

Meanwhile, I'll be waiting for Viola Davis to record an audio version of an Oprah's Book Club selection so she can cruise to a Grammy and her own much-deserved EGOT. - "She is such a dynamic vibrant personality and I have fallen in love with her a long time before the rest of America did but now America has fallen in love with her too and she inspires me everyday!"

Teigen and Legend socialized with fellow Creative Arts Emmys winners, which she documented on Instagram. He won an Oscar for a song with Common.

"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. "And sound mixing. All these people came together to make a really attractive production and we are so grateful for it". In 2017, he won a Tony for Best Revival of a Play for his role as a co-producer of Jitney.
