John Legend Wows Fellow 'Voice' Coaches by Casually Revealing That He Played on Lauryn Hill's 'Everything Is Everything': Exclusive

John Legend is a man of endless mystery, and in a new clip exclusive to Billboard, the crooner chats with The Voice judges behind-the-scenes about his impressive life achievements.   

"John says the fewest amount of words like Yoda," host Carson Daly says while getting ready for The Voice broadcast, to which all the judges agree. 

"Good vocabulary," Blake Shelton chimes in, before Legend adds that he was an English major in college. 

Soon enough, the information emerges that Legend played on Lauryn Hill's iconic Miseducation album on the track "Everything Is Everything." Kelly Clarkson immediately freaks out upon hearing it, to say the least.

"That’s your first step in the industry? I have no time for you," she jokes.

Legend then goes on to say that a friend from his college choir invited him to the studio with the R&B icon, and he ended up playing on the record after impressing her with a Stevie Wonder cover and an original song of his. "I got to go back to my senior year of school and be like, ‘I’m on Lauryn Hill’s album,'” the "All of Me" singer added.

"Forget EGOT, that’s the most impressive thing I’ve ever heard," Clarkson exclaims. Watch the sweet clip above.
