KXIP vs KKR Live Score

But their bid for EGOT status was derailed when the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics went to "Saturday Night Live" and their song "Come Back Barack" when Chance the Rapper was hosting.

There's only 15 people who have completed the EGOT - including Sir John Gielgud, Whoopi Goldberg, directors Mike Nichols and Mel Brooks - however John Legend is not only the youngest person to achieve EGOT status, he also did it in the second-shortest span of years.

In case you're wondering what an EGOT is, it stands for Emmy-Grammy-Oscar-Tony and is basically considered the grand slam of modern entertainment awards.

All three earned the coveted title by winning an Emmy for best variety special for NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert," with Legend as producer and Lloyd Webber and Rice as the composer and lyricist of the original 1970 musical.

Fitness tracker maker Fitbit said increased tariffs would compromise its investments in US -based innovation. China's imports from the United States a year ago totaled $153.9 billion.

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. Lopez is still technically the youngest-ever victor, as he was 39 years, 6 months, 3 days old when he won. So amazed to be in such rarefied air. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice never did a song with Common.

Sunday's Creative Arts Emmys saw the crowning of three new EGOT winners, with John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice becoming the latest to win the industry's biggest four awards.

Webber is 70 years old and Rice is 73 years old.
