John Legend is heading to NBC's This Is Us, but the appearance was just as much of a surprise to us as it was to Chrissy Teigen.
During the 2020 Golden Globes, the network aired a promo for the second half of Season 4, which kicks off on January 14, and the R&B singer appeared in the clip. While it was a brief cameo, the ad did not detail the exact nature of his guest role, but EW confirmed that the singer will be playing himself at the piano. Meanwhile, Teigen was hit with questions about the role, but, surprisingly, she didn't know anything about the guest appearance.
"Please tell us more about John on this is us," one Twitter user asked the TV personality, to which she replied, "I had no idea until now and still don’t get it? his song or himself?"
Among the other guest stars this season include Omar Epps, Phylicia Rashad, Marsha Stephanie Blake and Timothy Omundson. This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 PT on NBC.
