Adele is only missing one prize from being an EGOT winner. The international superstar won her first Emmy Award on Saturday for her CBS spectacular Adele: One Night Only, which was recognized in the Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) category. She now holds an Emmy, multiple Grammys, and an Oscar for Best Original Song for her “Skyfall” Bond theme.
Although the “Easy on Me” singer was unable to make it to the Creative Arts Emmys in person, she shared a photo with her new award on social media without any makeup.
“Bloody hell I’m pleased as punch! Thank you @mrbenwinston for dropping this round to me this afternoon!! Trust me to officially have an EGO 🤣,” she wrote in the caption.
“Thank you so much @televisionacad , I’m so so honored to receive this. Big up to everyone involved. @griffithobservatory thank you for letting me sing up on your mountain and big love to all the other nominees x,” she continued.
The singer’s first live performance in six years, captured on camera in Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory, was part of the award-winning television spectacular. It was the most-watched special since the Oscars when it aired in November and featured a lengthy chat with Oprah Winfrey.
The 30-year-old singer is currently just one Tony Award away from entering the select club of performers who have taken home all four of the top honors in the entertainment business. Rita Moreno, Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend, and Jennifer Hudson, who received a Tony in June for producing the musical A Strange Loop, are some of the 17 EGOT winners. Rita Moreno is most known for her role in West Side Story.
This year, the singer missed the VMAs as well. The notoriously private performer was probably getting ready for her newly scheduled Las Vegas residency, which will begin in November. In July of last year, she was seen traveling to Italy with her lover, NBA agent Rich Paul.
