“It was, kind of, strange for me to start a new job,” Vergara explained. “Because it was something I was not used to doing at all. But, the moment I got there everybody was so nice to me. Everybody, you know, I love being there. I enjoy being there. So it was easy.”

Vergara also spoke about how she felt like she was part of a family when she joined the “America’s Got Talent” judge panel. “I was very surprised and very happy that we have been able to get away with finishing the season.”

Vergara also spoke to Variety about why she decided to join “America’s Got Talent” following the end of “Modern Family.” 

“It didn’t occur to me that I could ever do something like ‘AGT’ ever in my life,” Vergara stated. “So when they came to me with the offer, I was like, ‘What? Me?’ And then it was like, ‘Oh my god, this is a godsend.’”

Vergara also said that she realized that “America’s Got Talent” is what she needed to do to forget “Modern Family.”

In regards to her other projects away from the sets, Vergara added she knew what she wanted to do with her career from the beginning. “I’ve been very clear from the beginning that what I wanted to do was become a household name so that I could do all the other businesses that I was always interested in.”
