America's Got Talent is getting a break from all the drama that has encompassed its reputation, well kind of. After the completion of the last season of AGT, it was announced that judges Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union would not be returning, after only being on the show for one season.
Drama and a subsequent investigation into the show and network practices was initiated following claims by Union that there were racist and discriminatory behaviors on the program by judges and other personnel. While an investigation was, in fact, underway, the new season gives the show a fresh start. For the upcoming season, Hiedi Klum will be returning, along with the addition of Sofia Vergara, the 'Modern Family' star.
