International supermodel, Heidi Klum, has been a staple on the hit show, America's Got Talent, regardless of if she's taken breaks here and there over the tenure of the program. She's one of the faces that people think of when the television show 'AGT' gets brought up.

So, it's fair to say that Klum's been there, done that, at least as it comes to knowing how the show works and being a judge. Naturally then, when Sofia Vergara came in for the first day of filming for the upcoming season, Klum was there to give the new judge some advice on what to expect and how to curb her nervousness.

Walking into her first episode of filming for AGT, Vergara was, no doubt, nervous. After all, she had been on scripted shows for the majority of her career, with her most recent project, Modern Family, coming to an end after being on television for 11 years. 'Reality television' was something new to her.

Klum was there to be a mentor for her, though, and reassure Vergara that everything was going to be ok. The model used an analogy and explained that it was just like being a new student in a class where they already have 'great classmates'.

"We had one day so far, and it was amazing," Klum said to reporters while discussing her new America's Got Talent co-star, Vergara. "She was nervous coming in obviously. She said, ‘it’s like I’m the new kid in the school.’ But I said, ‘but you have all great classmates. We all love you and there’s nothing you can do wrong here."

Klum also told the Colombian native to just be honest and speak her mind when it came to how she felt about each of the performances. To the former supermodel, it was all about being honest, even if that meant throwing out criticisms, when she felt as though they were deserved.

"Just speak your truth. Whatever you see, don’t hold back. Give them criticism on things that you see that needs to be criticized. If you loved everything, tell them that. Just speak from the heart, and then nothing can go wrong," Klum continued.

Klum tried to further console Vergara nervousness by sharing that she doesn't have to memorize lines anymore, which Klum claimed must certainly must be a relief. "I’m like, ‘it must be so amazing to not have to memorize anything for a change," she said.

Klum was asked by reporters how she felt about being back on the show after taking a short break. For her, it was a dream come true and ultimately, she was flattered to be asked to come back.

"I always feels great when people ask you back. It can’t be more of a compliment when people ask you to return to something. So, I was super flattered. And I love the show. I always have so much fun being here and discovering new talent and helping them to get to their next level or help them fulfill their dream."
