Sofia Vergara is America’s Got Talent‘s newest judge. The Modern Family actress will serve as a judge on season 15 of the NBC reality series, Variety reports. In addition, Heidi Klum is returning as a judge as well for the first time since 2018. They join current judges Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel, with Terry Crews serving as host. The announcement arrives amid an ongoing investigation into the exit of judges Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough last season.
“I’m so happy to join my new family on AGT,” Vergara said. “This is a new and exciting next chapter for me and I’m extremely proud to be the first Latin judge on the show. I can’t wait to watch all the talent and have fun with all you guys!”
Heidi Klum added, “I’m so excited to be back at AGT with Simon, Howie and Terry. The fact that Sofia Vergara is joining us is the icing on an already delicious cake.”
