A woman at the Britain's Got Talent live finale attempted to egg Simon Cowell in the middle of a performance. Opera singers Richard and Adam Johnson did not skip a beat of their performance of "Dream the Impossible Dream" even as the lady rushed the stage and attacked Simon along with fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the woman was a viola player named Natalie Holt who leapt from her seat to go after the judges. The eggs did not make contact and Holt was quickly escorted off-stage by security. UK's Daily Mail received a statement from Holt through the show which read, "I want to apologize to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance. I've never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realized it was a silly thing to do."

  • Simon later tweeted about the incident saying, "I really don't like eggs."
  • Natalie was previously a contestant on the show.
  • The opera singers ended up coming in third place
