EGOT refers to artists who've won all four major US entertainment awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Up until 2014, only 12 people have made it to EGOT status. But after the recently held 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, three new additions were welcomed to the club: composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyricist Tim Rice, and John Legend for their work on the live TV production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

John, who also played the title role, won an Emmy for co-producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live - making him the first African-American man and the youngest man in the EGOT squad! 

Legend, whose real name is John Stephens, has ten Grammys, one Oscar for co-writing "Glory" from Selma which won Best Original Song, and one Tony as co-producer of Jitney which won Best Revival of Play.
