    This is now on national television news. haha

    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:



    Enjoy ;)

    How the hell did she get on the stage. Was she in the orchestra or something?

    Eggcellent news.

    I saw this live on TV; didn't know what was happening at first.

    Good on her - Cowell is dreadful for the music industry - very exploitative.

    Sooooooooo obviously planned...

    Did you see how long it took security to get her off stage, she pretty much had time to throw every single egg at the judges.

    This is today's stage managed sh!te...

    The show run by judges douches with hubris higher than the Eiffel Tower...

    The UK tabloids feast on this and call it show business...

    Strictly for some morons to watch (who have high IQ in single figures)

    However some lovely grandmas watch it because they just think it is funny...

    Or for folks like me who never watch but are always up for a 'bubble bath' at these mugs

    Fair enough to call the show tripe, but it's pretty ignorant to claim everyone who watches it are morons.

    My grandma is a very nice lady I'll have you know.

    Great grandma means his grandma's mother :).

    On-topic: We're slowly turning into a less funny version of "Idiocracy". Who didn't saw that movie please view it. It's the best depiction of the future you'll ever see.

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, it seems. No one ever said morons cannot be "nice". Too many people confuse charisma for intelligence. I would call those people "morons".

    On topic, what's the deal about making a statement vs. "miming". I also avoid this moronic (but nice) show, but am curious as to whether or not the show rewards people that merely lip-synch to other people's music? If so, they deserve the eggs, as well as the contents of several litter-boxes.

    My point wasn't that moron's can't be nice, my point was that it's unfair to call everyone who watches a certain show a moron. But Steelballs corrected his post :)
