During Sunday night's Creative Emmy Awards, John Legend won the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special thanks to his role as producer on Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.

The "Save Room" singer became the youngest member of the prestigious 'EGOT' club, and exclusive group of entertainers who have won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards.

The same night, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice also became members of the prestigious EGOT club that also includes Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, and Whoopi Goldberg. Legend is also the first African-American male to join the EGOT club.

A very proud Chrissy Teigen celebrated her man's big win this weekend with a photo of the three newest members of the club on Twitter.

"We put so much love into this performance," Legend said during his acceptance speech.

"Even Jesus and Judas, a lot of their interaction was based on love, even there was some betrayal, even though there was some disappointment, and we put so much love into this and I'm so happy that we were able to do this and that you all love it so much and honored our show."
