AceShowbiz – Eric Stonestreet turned “America’s Got Talent” into a “Modern Family” affair on Wednesday (March 11), when he stepped in for an ill Heidi Klum and joined the judging panel alongside Sofia Vergara.
The German model called in sick with a bad cold and producers scrambled to find someone who could take her place among the judges for Wednesday’s taping of the show.
Fan Stonestreet was quick to respond and raced to take his place alongside his “Modern Family” castmate, Howie Mandel, and Simon Cowell.
Eric and Sofia recently wrapped the final episode of “Modern Family” after 11 seasons.
“AGT” is one of the few U.S. shows still filming with a studio audience amid the coronavirus crisis. Producers of the programme have told the media they are taking every precaution necessary to make sure the audience, judges, and guests are safe.
