Sofia Vergara is not a face we want to miss on TV, and fans were already fretting about the fact that her stint as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s Modern Family was coming to an end in April. So how were her fans going to get her daily fix? Well, there’s no need to wring hands, just yet. Because Vergara will be joining Heidi Klum as a judge for the 15th season of America’s Got Talent, and this time fans will get to see the real Sofia Vergara.
Along with Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara, America’s Got Talent will also have Simon Cowell as a continuing judge, along with Howie Mandel. Terry Crews, from Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be hosting the show again. Klum is pretty excited to be back with Cowell and Mandel, and calls the new addition of Sofia Vergara as “the icing on the cake”. With her lilting accent, that charming way of talking and that $100million body, Vergara is sure to blow all contestants and fans away.
Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough exit the show after the season 14 finale for various if controversial reasons, If Cowell is to be believed, which for many may be a little too far out from the truth, then the judges are changed mostly because of the show’s falling ratings. Apparently, Cowell has got nothing to do with the ratings going down, ever. Cutting wit and sarcasm always works though Cowell has turned over a fresher, slightly milder leaf as the show progressed.
Cowell refuses to address these rumors and neither does the NBC staff at hand, but Union has been pretty vocal about the fact that Cowell often smokes in the studio. Which, by the way, is against the law. Since no one can tell Cowell what to do or not to do, his eccentricities are oft-ignored. Gabrielle Union could not take it anymore and had a long and frank talk with the producers of the show, and Julianna Hough gently sided with her.
Whatever may be the reasons behind the exit of Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough, its definitely a win for both Vergara and her fans. This is one woman who has managed to be one of the highest-paid TV actresses and has been collecting Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her role in Modern Family. So clearly, Vergara will always remain on a high, be it on Modern Family or as a judge on the 15th season of America’s Got Talent.
