He has since won eight more Grammy Awards.

Legend said to reporters from Vulture, that if it did happen, "it would be a truly rare group of people to join", referring to those who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, a Tony Award, as well as an Oscar.

Legend previously won an Oscar and Grammy for his work on the movie "Selma" and a Tony for the best revival of a play, "Jitney". (Legend also has a Golden Globe for "Glory", but that doesn't mean anything in the EGOT world.) The "All of Me" singer already has ten Grammys, including Best New Artist from 2006, and he got his Tony a year ago for co-producing a revival of the August Wilson play Jitney.

NBC's live telling of Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage musical Jesus Christ Superstar was nominated in 12 other categories - brining its total to 13 nominations - including Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series for Brandon Victor Dixon as Judas, Outstanding Production Design, and Outstanding Casting for a special.

In addition to bringing Legend one step closer to making history, his Emmy nomination also marks his first nod for acting. "I couldn't be more proud of what we all did together and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to do this".

Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen chimed in on Twitter with her excitement over his nomination.

This morning, Samira Wiley ("The Handmaid's Tale", "Orange Is the New Black") and Ryan Eggold ("New Amsterdam", "BlackKklansman") announced the nominations for the 70TH PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS from the WOLFTheatre at the Television Academy's Saban Media Center. That list includes Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Brooks, and Audrey Hepburn. "But it's ok I AM SO PROUD!"

"13 nominations for Jesus Christ Superstar this morning!" If he wins, he will complete his EGOT and my spike TV award will probably be moved.
