“Should I post the one where his head looks unsupported but my face looks good and Luna is over it, the one where his head is supported but my face is just okay and Luna is over it, or him crying and my face looks okay and luna is over it?”

The special — produced by Universal Television, Done + Dusted and Friends at Work — marks the latest in a string of collaborations between Legend and NBC.

Last month, the singer won a producing Emmy for “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” — the network’s April 2018 TV musical, in which he played the titular role — an award that cemented his EGOT status. Legend also recently landed a coaching gig on “The Voice,” replacing Jennifer Hudson for the next season of NBC’s four-time Emmy-winning musical competition series.

In 2015, Legend and rapper Common won the Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy Award for their song “Glory” from the film “Selma.” Legend has released five studio albums, won 10 Grammy Awards, and served as producer on the 2016 film “La La Land.” His other big and small screen credits include “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Underground” and “Soul Men.”
