Guess who has the potential to follow in the major footsteps of EGOT winners like Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones, Harry Belafonte, and Quincy Jones!

John Legend‘s recent Tony Awards win as a co-producer of Jitney, which won for best play revival, puts him much closer to being mentioned with the above greats. Only one award stands in his way for reaching the ultimate nod of show business: an Emmy.

To be honest, we’re quite confident that JL has this one in the bag. We’re thinking if he can get Underground back on the air, an Emmy will not be too far down the line.

Congrats John Legend!
