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.

Legend wasn't the only one to clinch EGOT status - composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice also scored their Emmys for their work on the NBC special.

Speaking with ET over the summer, Legend admitted it would be "pretty incredible" if he were to become an EGOT victor.

He later gushed over his wife, Chrissy Teigen, 32, crediting her as his No. 1 supporter after reaching the major milestone.

Legend also became the first black man to conquer the EGOT and the youngest victor.

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. The singer already had 10 Grammys, an Oscar for his original song from 2014's "Selma" and a Tony for producing the 2017 revival of the play "Jitney".

Meanwhile, I'll be waiting for Viola Davis to record an audio version of an Oprah's Book Club selection so she can cruise to a Grammy and her own much-deserved EGOT. They previously won an Oscar for "La La Land", and a Tony and a Grammy for "Dear Evan Hansen". At 39, he is the youngest person to ever do so and he is also the first black man to do it as well.

Others who have achieved this rare honor include Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Brooks.

So, now that Legend, Rice and Lloyd Webber now EGOT status, does that mean they also get a diamond-encrusted chain? On Sunday evening, Legend took to Instagram to acknowledge the historic career milestone.
