Production is just starting up in Hollywood, and America’s Got Talent is one of the very few shows that is back on the job. New judge Sofia Vergara gave us a glimpse of what it will look like when they get up to the Judges’ Cuts episodes. Now, Howie Mandel is showing us what the production meetings look like with him and his fellow judges Vergara, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, and host Terry Crews.

Instead of sitting in a conference room at a table, they are in an empty sound stage on chairs that are 6′ apart. Another big difference is that they are all wearing masks. I am sure they wish that Cowell was donning the one that Hannibal Lecture wore in Silence of the Lambs.

Sofia Vergara reveals how America’s Got Talent adapted for COVID-19?

Back when the coronavirus pandemic hit America hard, America’s Got Talent was filming new episodes. Just like everything else in Hollywood, it got shut down.

Since Simon Cowell is an innovator, he came up with an interesting way so that they can continue doing the show during COVID-19.

How are they going to do it? The first big difference, seen in Sofia Vergara’s photo, is that there is not going to be an audience. Instead of taping inside a studio, they are doing it outside on a lot. The judges, Cowell, Vergara, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum, are not sitting behind a desk, instead, they are sitting in directors’ chairs.

When it comes to the stage, it looks that they are replacing itwith a huge screen so that the acts don’t have to come to Hollywood until they do the live shows. If they do come to Los Angeles, that is.

I am impressed with what they did. I wonder if Dancing with the Stars and The Masked Singer will follow this format in the fall?

I am not sure when these episodes will air. However, tonight on NBC at 8p, you can see Eric Stonestreet fill in for Heidi Klum, who was out sick with something that was not the corona.

Heidi Klum looks different than I remember

On Tuesday, Heidi Klum was not able to tape America’s Got Talent because she went home with a common cold according to NBC sourced.

Since the show must go on (while it can until the Coronavirus shuts it down), they brought in Eric Stonestreet to replace her. You know, because he is practically her twin.

He is lucky, his Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara is a judge on the show now. I am sure she helped to convince Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel to give him the job.

Heidi Klum too sick to do America’s Got Talent

Even though, America’s Got Talent doesn’t air until the summer, they are filming the episodes now. Yesterday, all four of the judges showed up to work, but only three of them made it oot to stage.

According to TMZ, Heidi Klum went home sick with suspected food poisoning, and not the Coronavirus.

I wonder if maybe it wasn’t food poising and she is instead pregnant with her fifth kid, her first with husband, Tom Kaulitz. That is something that only time will tell.

Since the show must go, it did with judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel and Sofia Vergara.

America’s Got Talent once again doesn’t have an American judge on the panel

Last year, for the first time in a long time, America’s Got Talent had two Americans sitting at the judges’ table. Then, they decided not to ask Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough back for another season.

Today, they announced who will be sitting in their seats. Germany’s Heidi Klum is back for a seventh season, and Columbia’s Sofia Vergara will be joining the show for her first one. She was rumored for being up for the job in December. Both women will be seated next to England’s Simon Cowell and Candian Howie Mandel.

What is wrong with having an American judge on a show called America’s Got Talent. We have talent, but we don’t know how to judge it? I guess at least we have Terry Crews as a host, and he is American. I hope he is also there to translate because there are three very thick accents on that panel, and it might be hard for the American contestants to understand them.

Let’s talk about the Modern Family actress. It is such a random hire. I don’t really know if I think of her as someone who can identify talent. The same way I did not think Union would be able to do it. However, I thought that Mrs. Dwyane Wade did a good job on the show. Hopefully, Vergara will surprise us.

On that note, Mandel had a little welcome message for his new co-judge. He wrote, “Sofia, please don’t try to shake my hand. Fist bumps only.” I bet you he would not turn down a hug from her. Who would?
