Probably more than a few talent show contestants have wanted to do what Natalie Holt did during the finale of "Britain's Got Talent" finale. She egged Simon Cowell!
During the performance of finalists Richard and Adam Johnson's performance, viola player Natalie Holt leapt from her seat and pelted Cowell with eggs. You can see the incident in the video below or click here to watch it (the egging starts at about 1:53 into the video:)She was rushed off the stage by security.
Afterward, Natalie released a statement, "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 realised it was a silly thing to do." Then in a later interview with the Telegraph in London, she gave her motivation, “I basically took a stand against people miming on television and against Simon and his dreadful influence on the music industry". By the way, Natalie Holt had previously been a contestant on "Britain's Got Talent."
Kudos to Richard and Adam for doing a beautiful job, and barely skipping a beat when the egging incident happened. They came in 3rd place.
