Finalists Richard and Adam Johnson were performing an opera rendition of “The Impossible Dream” on the finale, when a woman suddenly ran to the front of the stage and hurled five raw eggs at Cowell before she was thwarted by security.
The woman was identified as Natalie Holt, a member of the Raven Quartet, a rejected talent act in the previous season of Britain’s Got Talent.
Natalie issued an apology after the incident: “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.”
No criminal charges was filed against Natalie.
