This past Saturday night, while 2 young Brits sang ‘The Impossible Dream,” a woman ran onstage during the finale moments of a sweet operatic performance, and started chucking raw eggs at Simon and his judging panel. The thrower looked maniacal with a huge idiotic smile on her face.
Us Magazine says Security guys then grabbed the woman and she was quickly rushed off the stag. Turns out, she is the viola player with the orchestra backing the contestants, who are opera singers Richard and Adam Johnson, from Wales.
The dimwitted egg-thrower did apologize shortly after her uninspired and intrusive performance, adding that it was actualy a “silly thing to do.” The operatic Johnson brothers finished third in the competition.
Cowell, meantime seemed a bit shocked after the attack but later tweeted, “I really don’t like eggs.” He added, “I don’t think eggs should be allowed on talent shows.”
This reporter wonders, however, if this wasn’t just an attention-seeking ploy on the part of Cowell’s producers. In addition to stinking raw eggs, I smell a PUBLICITY STUNT.
