In this EXCLUSIVE interview with John Legend, he tells HollywoodLife about the pressure he feels while taking on ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ Live!
John Legend, 39, will portray the one and only Jesus when Jesus Christ Superstar Live airs on Easter Sunday, April 1, at 8pm ET on NBC. The Grammy, Tony and Oscar winning artist may have more experience than needed to pull off a live musical on television, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t work hard to make sure he delivered nothing but the best. “[There’s] pressure but it’s good pressure. It means you don’t take any shortcuts,” John told HollywoodLife when we spoke with him before the show. “You don’t skimp under preparation. People are gonna expect a lot from this and I’m gonna try to give them the best that I can possibly give them.”
