The next season of America’s Got Talent is already shaping up to be a good’un if the new judging panel is anything to go by…

Following Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough’s exits after just one season, two new judging spots have opened up. And they’re going to none other than Heidi Klum – an AGT regular, of course – and Modern Family’s very own Sofia Vergara!

As expected, Sofia Vergara is thrilled to have a seat on the iconic judging panel, alongside Heidi, Simon Cowell, Howie Mande, and Terry Crews…

“I’m so happy to join my new family on AGT,” Sofia Vergara said in a press release.

“This is a new and exciting next chapter for me and I’m extremely proud to be the first Latin judge on the show. I can’t wait to watch all the talent and have fun with all you guys!”

She isn’t the only one, as Heidi Klum also spoke of her excitement to return to the show – as well as her desire to work with the legendary Latina…

“I’m so excited to be back at AGT with Simon, Howie and Terry,” Heidi Klum said.

“The fact that Sofia Vergara is joining us is the icing on an already delicious cake.”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!

America’s Got Talent season 15 will air on NBC this summer – we can’t wait!
