Winning an EGOT is no easy feat, but John Legend is one of few that can say that he has done it!

For those playing at home, the EGOT is an acronym for numerous prestigious awards, including an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award, and the title goes to someone who has one at least one of each.

Like we said, it ain’t something easy to do!

But when you’re as talented as John Legend of course he’s not only completed the EGOT with eleven grammies, one academy award, golden globe award, tony award and an emmy award under his belt, but he’s actually the first African American man to do so.

“You’ve done the EGOT!” Jackie explained.

“Yeah I have,” John confirmed.

“Making Legend the first African American man ever to earn the EGOT,” Kyle added. “That’s quite an achievement! I think it’s amazing.”

Of course these aren’t the only awards Mr John Legend has one…

“Not to forget the sexiest man alive,” Jackie added, reminding us of the time that People Magazine named John the Sexiest Man Alive for 2019.

“Oh yeah, that too,” John laughed.

“Yeah that too, that old thing,” Jackie laughed.


“That’s the one I feel like I earned the least,” John joked.

Um, we beg to differ Mr Legend!
