Legend is months away from his 40th birthday, Lopez - who reached the status in for this song "Let It Go" from Frozen - made EGOT status a week after his 39th birthday.

The "Ordinary People" singer on Sunday won the Creative Arts Emmys for his role in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert". So shoutout to him for being awesome. He's previously won an Oscar for his work on the song "Glory" for the movie Selma, he earned his Tony for his work as the producer for the revival of the play Jitney, and he's been nominated for and won several Grammys over the years for his unbelievable music. "If he wins, he will complete his EGOT and my spike tv award will probably be moved". Legend was 39 years, 8 months and 13 days old.

Earlier in the night, the Lip Sync Battle host foreshadowed how she would look if Jesus Christ Superstar emerged victorious.

India's Supreme Court ends colonial-era ban on gay sex
The law punishes, in its own words, "carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal". However, certain clauses of the Section 377 like unnatural sex with animals or children are still in place.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, co-hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che, will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.

John Legend is an outstanding artist. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, producers of the OG JCS, also joined this group after Sunday's win. Legend has also won 10 Grammys - out of his 28 total nominations - having earned his first in 2005.

Andrew Lloyd Webber previously bagged an Oscar in 1997 for the original "Evita" song "You Must Love Me", and two Grammys for the soundtracks to "Evita" and "Cats", as well as an additional prize for a requiem written for his late father.

Whether or not that occurs before or after landfall makes the longer range forecast uncertain at this point. But a trough could weaken that ridge, steering the storm more toward the northwest and away from land.

Legend, Rice and Lloyd Webber were the first new members of the EGOT club since 2014. They wrote a lot of great musicals, though, so shoutout to them, too.

All genuine happiness aside, she's still Chrissy Teigen, so she continued her celebration of Legend's win the only way she knows how: by playfully roasting him.
