Roll out the gold carpet! Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend hit the gold carpet ahead of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday, September 17, and took time chatting with E!’s Giuliana Rancic before making their way into the awards show.
The 39-year-old R&B singer made history last week after becoming the first African American man to receive EGOT status. Legend took home the Outstanding Variety Special Emmy for producing NBC's live production Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert and is also up for another Emmy this evening, Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for Jesus Christ Superstar.
Given the singer has now reached EGOT status, is there anything he can’t do?!
Well, according to wife Chrissy, you don’t want Legend on your team when it comes to guessing games.
“He’s very bad at games where you need speed … he thinks too long,” Chrissy joked when asked by G what John can't do. “Pictionary? No. Scattorgies? No.”
Legend agreed and explained he’s “slow at giving clues.”
The duo are also set to present at the awards show and while Chrissy admitted she’s “terrified” of hitting the stage, others might be nervous to address her as well considering she revealed on Twitter that people have been pronouncing her name wrong!
ICYMI, it all came about after Ariana Grande revealed that people also pronounce her last name wrong. (According to the songstress, it's “Gran-Dee,” not “Gran-Day.”)
“Word!” Chrissy tweeted in response to a fan who pointed out the mispronunciation. “Gave up a long time ago. Last name is tie-gen not tee-gen.”
The cookbook author, however, doesn’t want you to correct yourself.
“The bigger story is Ariana — Ariana Grande — that’s way bigger. That’s where it came from … There’s [also] Rihanna … Mine is the least of anyone's worries,” she told Giuliana on the Emmys carpet. “I still will say Tee-Gen …. Sorry Dad!”
Catch the 70th Emmy Awards live on NBC tonight at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
