Sofia Vergara is Returning on AGT Season 18
AGT is the top entertainment show on US TV and a huge hit worldwide. Fans will no doubt be thrilled to hear that Vergara will be returning to the judging panel for season 18, which is set to begin this summer.
According to an insider, the network and Cowell both wanted Vergara back on the show, and the chemistry among the judges was too important to mess with. Vergara missed out on AGT: All-Stars due to a scheduling conflict as she was busy filming for the Netflix series Griselda during the AGT: All-Stars auditions.
There were concerns that Vergara might have been out of the show for good after her absence from AGT: All-Stars. However, it’s clear that the network and Cowell value her contribution and intend to maintain the successful dynamic of the judging panel.
Cowell also spoke about expressing his admiration for the AGT: All-Stars contestants, who are all now successful performers in their own right. He also stated that the show does not provide any cash prize for returning, and the contestants are competing only to win the crown. The judging panel for season 18 will consist of Vergara, Cowell, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum. Terry Crews will also be returning as the host of the show.
