Adele is one award away from becoming an EGOT achiever!

Thanks to “Adele: One Night Only,” the British songstress is now one of the artists waiting for the final entertainment award to be added to the coveted EGOT roster.

With Adele’s current career trajectory, the next award is something she has not yet explored, but the likelihood of her receiving it is very high.

‘Adele: One Night Only’ received one of the most Emmy nominations at the recent 74th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

The TV special tied for 5 Emmys with “The Beatles: Get Back,” “The White Lotus,” “Stranger Things,” and “Euphoria.”

Adele received the Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) award for “Adele: One Night Only,” while the show received all of its nominations.

Outstanding Variety Special Directing, Outstanding Lighting Design / Lighting Direction, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series or Special, Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, and Video Control.

Adele thanked Fulwell 73 CEO Ben Winston, who produced the show, the Television Academy, the Griffith Observatory for the venue, and her fellow nominees in a recent Instagram post.

“One Last Time: An Evening with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga,” “Dave Chapelle: The Closer,” “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts,” and “Norm Macdonald: Nothing Special” were all beaten by the star-studded show.

With 15 GRAMMY nominations and counting, Adele is no stranger to GRAMMY success. She won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Skyfall” in 2013.

Adele is now only one Tony Award away from winning the Emmy.

While her current career appears unrelated to musical theater, Adele’s path to the Tonys may be easier than ever.

Jennifer Hudson, the most recent addition to the accomplished roster, received her Tony Award only recently, but not as a performer.

Hudson co-produced the Tony-winning musical “A Strange Loop” with industry heavyweights such as RuPaul and Mindy Kaling, among many others.

Should Adele choose to have her music turned into a musical, to some extent produce a musical, or even star in a Broadway production or a play, she could finally achieve EGOT status, which with her impact and influence, could be a foregone conclusion.
