Simon Cowell Egged During ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Live Finale

Simon Cowell‘s Britain’s Got Talent came to an egg-citing conclusion on Saturday night. The ITV show was won by Hungarian shadow dance troupe Attraction, but it was during the performance of third place Welsh singing brothers Richard and Adam Johnson that a woman raced on stage
and started pelting judges Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams with eggs.

It later came to light that the woman was Natalie Holt, a member of the Johnsons’ backing group. She was summarily pulled off stage and an ITV spokesperson later told Digital Spy, “As a result of her misguided actions the police were called. However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage.” Holt later apologized, but then told The Telegraph:

“I basically took a stand against people miming on television and against Simon and his dreadful influence on the music industry.”

Here’s video of the incident; the pelting starts at the 1:49 mark:
