NEW YORK (AP) — Music stars in competition for Emmys this year include Bruno Mars, Sara Bareilles, Ricky Martin and John Legend, who earned two nominations.

Legend and Bareilles each earned acting nods for their roles in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert." Legend also picked up a nomination as a producer of the special in the outstanding variety special (live) category.

Mars, an 11-time Grammy winner, earned a nomination for outstanding music direction for his first TV special, CBS' "Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo."

Martin is up for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his role in FX's "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story."

Legend, who has won several Grammys as well as an Oscar and a Tony, could become an EGOT — one of the rare entertainers to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and a Tony.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are also on their way to EGOT status: The composing duo earned a nomination for outstanding original music and lyrics for "In the Market for a Miracle" from Fox's "A Christmas Story Live!"

Pasek and Paul won a Grammy and a Tony for their work on Broadway's "Dear Evan Hansen," and an Oscar for "City of Stars" from "La La Land."

Donald Glover, who is having major success under his music moniker Childish Gambino with the hit "This Is America," earned four nominations, including three for his work on the hit FX series, "Atlanta," and one for hosting "Saturday Night Live." LL Cool J, as a producer, is nominated for outstanding structured realty program for Spike TV's "Lip Sync Battle."
