John Legend received a Grammy nomination for his Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert album; however, he was noticeably absent from one of the music industry's biggest nights.
His wife, internet socialite Chrissy Teigen, filled the public in on his whereabouts with a brilliant tweet.
It appears that the "Love Me Now" singer opted to sleep in.
Teigen posted a stealth photo of her hubby caught in the middle of a snoozefest and tweeted, "No Grammys for us today."
So what's his excuse, Chrissy?
"john got and [sic] EGOT and egot lazy."

Despite the little typo with the word "an," her pun on EGOT was off the charts.
Of course, the 33-year-old was referring to her superstar husband who was the recipient of four major top honors in the entertainment industry – an Emmy, an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Tony.
Legend, 40, officially became a member of the exclusive EGOT league after he won an Emmy for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live.
In 2015, he took home a Best Original Song Oscar for the anthemic "Glory" from Selma.
He won a Tony in 2017 as a producer for the musical revival, Jitney.
Since music his is first language, he's swept the Grammys, winning ten Grammy awards since 2005.
With Legend's impressive resume (and just constantly winning in general) maybe it was time for an overdue respite from his continued successes.
Meanwhile, Teigen was accepting her win for her near-perfect tweet.

The cookbook author and former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model couldn't resist patting herself on the back for this one.

Does Twitter give out awards? No?
Well, they need to get the ball rolling on that.

Now that Legend's true whereabouts were exposed to the public, courtesy of his adoring wife, what does EGOT to say for himself?
Rest easy, my friend. You deserve it.
