It’s official. Sofia Vergara is joining the America’s Got Talent panel this year! How are viewers responding to the news? Let’s find out.
‘America’s Got Talent’ welcomes it’s first Latina judge!
It seems Sofia Vergara is ready to go once AGT begins this summer. The actor has just finished filming long time running sitcom, Modern Family and has already found her new home.
She’s had been in talks for months with NBC, and finally, we had an official judging panel.
Joining Vergara on the panel are returning judges Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel. The show will be making history this year, as it welcomes it’s very first Latina judge. Terry Crews will return as host.
How are AGT viewers responding to the news?
For the most part, viewers can’t be more excited about the news. Many are claiming that this will be the first time they will tune into the show since Gabrielle and Julianne were announced. Others have used the announcement to make derogatory comments about Vergara’s accent. It could just be light heated humor for all we know.
‘Sofia Vergara is going to be gold!!!’ says one user responding to the news.
Others expressed their disappointment that Vergara didn’t refuse the job in response to the controversy around Gabrielle’s time on the show. One tweet said, “Disappointed but not surprised by Sofia Vergara’s decision to join #AGT. This would have been a great opportunity to stand up and support Gabrielle.”

Could Sofia Vergara vs Simon Cowell be TV’s best duo yet?
Uhhh, absolutely! Sofia is fiery, sharp-witted and nothing but fun to be around. If you’ve been worried about Simon returning to his old roots of egotism, we can be sure that stops now with Sofia joining the lineup.
It seems that filming was well underway for the show and while the show is on a break due to the pandemic, once it is all over, it will be back without a hitch.
If you look closely, the producers have sat Simon and Sofia right next to each other and we can see some legendary fights in the making.
