John Legend Wins a Tony Award


John Legend is one step away from legendary EGOT status...
 
On Sunday John Legend won a Tony Award as a producer of the play revival "Jitney" bringing him one step closer to elusive EGOT status of winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.

John currently has 10 Grammy Awards and an Oscar for co-writing the Best Original Song "Glory" from the Martin Luther King jr. biopic "Selma."

Other EGOT winners include Whoopi Goldberg and Rita Moreno and only 12 performers in all.

John giving his asshole to the right folks in Hollywood, and can probably suck just as good as he sings. How else did he get these accolades?

John is a gifted musician and songwriter. He's also very educated. Not surprised that he has succeeded the way he has. Now as for his choice in a beard.....

This man gets on my last nerve!! He reminds me of a bad lounge singer. I want him to go away and take his Calgon-lady-big-faced-wifed with him. They BOTH annoy my soul....

@ 9:36 am lol. i kind of liked him when he first came out, but after a while all his music sounded the same to me. he has a monotone voice. he is a gifted writer and producer though. it's strange how he seems very supportive of black stories/music, but then choose thirsty chrissy for his wife. they don't even go well together. i guess maybe a black woman wasn't willing to play beard.
