A Legend is headed to This Is Us.

EGOT winner John Legend will guest-star on NBC’s hit family drama. A promo for the second half of season 4 (which kicks off Jan. 14) that aired during the Golden Globes featured a brief shot of the musician. The ad did not reveal the exact nature of his guest role — which EW has confirmed — though Legend appeared to be playing himself, dapper as usual at the piano.

The season 4 guest roster for This Is Us includes Omar Epps, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Tim Matheson, and Timothy Omundson.

EW recently revealed two first-look photos for the midseason premiere, which you can check out here.
