Eminem or Adele? Who will hit EGOT status first?
John Legend and Jennifer Hudson might have some company soon
With their wins at the 2022 Creative Arts Emmys, both Adele and Eminem just added one more award to their collection of many, making them one step away from coveted EGOT status.
EGOT status is an elusive acronym for when an artist has won an Emmy, GRAMMY, Oscar and a Tony. One that only 17 people have managed to achieve, the likes of which include Audrey Hepburn and Whoopi Goldberg, and more recently John Legend and Jennifer Hudson.
During the non-televised Emmy event, Adele won for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) for her CBS special, “One Night Only.” While, Eminem won for Outstanding Variety Special (Live), alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar for the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show. Executive producer JAY-Z was also among the award recipients.
So, with their recent Emmy wins, multiple GRAMMYs, and an Academy Award for an original song under both of their belts, it seems the only thing missing for Adele and Eminem is a Tony.
