It's about damn time Lizzo gets even closer to her EGOT status.

As the 34-year-old performer delivered an emotional speech inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, fans quickly realized that Lizzo could very well be on her way to earning EGOT status.

She has already won three Grammys including Best Urban Contemporary Album for Cuz I Love You, Best Traditional R&B Performance for "Jerome" and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Truth Hurts."

While earning an Oscar and Tony next may be a challenge for some, Lizzo fans believe she can absolutely accomplish it sooner rather than later.

Lizzo can EGOT. I feel it," singer Lynda Carter said on Twitter while the show aired live on NBC and Peacock. Another user wrote, Lizzo is now in the EGOT conversation." After all, she's halfway there.

"When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media," she said. "Someone fat like me, Black like me, beautiful like me. If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I would be like, 'You're going to see that person but bitch, it's going to have to be you.'" 

For the star-studded evening, Lizzo looked red hot in a Giambattista Valli dress styled by Jason Rembert and tailored by Matthew Reisman.
