WATCH Sofia Vergara Judge ‘America’s Got Talent’ Auditions Online From Home

Sophia-Vergara-America's Got Talent Auditions

America’s Got Talent is just one of the many shows that had to make some changes to their production schedule amid the coronavirus outbreak. Now, the judges continue to work from home by watching auditions online. New judge Sofia Vergara recently posted an Instagram story about judging auditions from home.

Sofia Vergara Posted An Instagram Story Talking About The New Auditions Format

Vergara was ready to start another judging session from the basement of her house. She said she was “super excited.” However, she did say that it is not the same as being on the stage and the set. She is still grateful to be working and that the show is continuing watching auditions even if it is remotely. Vergara also posted another story encouraging people to send their audition tapes to “America’s Got Talent reopened auditions for this season and we want to see your talent.”


This comes after ‘AGT’ put out a video on Instagram featuring the judges along with host Terry Crews telling people that they still have time to audition for the season. Howie Mandel encourages people to make their living rooms into their makeshift stage. Heidi Klum says to start practicing and send in your best performance yet. Simon Cowell says it does not matter what age you are, all are welcomed to apply.

How Sofia Vergara And The Judges Work From Home

Vergara also posted some screenshots of her fellow judges as they worked from home. She captioned the post “Having fun judging @agt season 15!!! So lucky to be able to keep working from home! Luv u guys! @howiemandel @heidiklum@simoncowell @terrycrews.” Klum commented on the post saying “That was fun today. So nice to see you.” We’re glad to see that they’re still having fun filming the show even at home.

Vergara’s basement looks huge as she sits comfortably on a big white couch with tons of comfy pillows. That’s one way to stay comfy while filming. Klum looks gorgeous as she sits in a chair next to a bright purple orchid. Mandel opted for a more rustic feel with his setup as he is surrounded by bookshelves and even an homage to his time hosting the show Deal or No Deal. One of the infamous suitcases from the show is hanging up on the bookshelf next to him.


You can see a small glimpse of Cowell and his setup as he sits in a huge white sofa chair in a serene-looking room. He even has a cup of tea sitting next to him. All of the judges have microphones in front of them to communicate with each other as well as give feedback on the auditions that they are watching online.

Turn Your Quarantine Into A Fun ‘AGT’ Audition

The judges are only reviewing auditions now. It was originally slated to premiere in May. It is unclear when the show will be able to resume in person as coronavirus continues to spread around the world. Many people are stuck in quarantine or in lockdowns so it only makes sense to come up with a talent and audition for the show. Are you a dancer like Terry Crews? Send in your tape now and you might just be featured on the show when it finally airs.

Or maybe you can play the flute like him in your America’s Got Talent audition.

In any case, the judges are eager to see your auditions and give you some great feedback all from the comfort of their own homes. And who knows which of these online auditions will be featured on television eventually. Who wouldn’t want to impress Sofia Vergara?
