Britain’s Got Talent 2013: Viola player Natalie Holt eggs Simon Cowell (VIDEO)

simon cowell egged bgt


It’s all kicking off tonight on Britain’s Got Talent!

Simon Cowell thought he had to be worried about David Walliams antics on the live show, but after most of the performances had taken place and David had more or less behaved himself, the drama came from another quarter altogether.

As we reported earlier, as singing siblings Richard and Adam performed The Impossible Dream, as they attempted to scoop the £250,000 prize money at the end of the final, one of their band joined them at the front of the stage and began to pelt Simon Cowell with eggs.

Viola player Natalie Holt left her seat and threw a number of eggs at the judges, before she was whisked away by security, allowing the performers to continue their song.

Natalie normally performs as part of the The Raven Quartet, however they weren’t on stage with her tonight. While she hasn’t tweeted about the incident yet, they have and the string quartet posted on Twitter saying:

“So. Any ideas who this #eggwoman is from the #bgtfinal? We’ve got a good idea….”

They added:

“We were as surprised as all of you.”

“Just to clarify…. The other 3 of us were working elsewhere today and found out when you did.”

It’s been reported that Natalie has played at a number of high profile events previously, including The Olympics. We imagine she’ll find it hard to gain access to venues like that again.

We have no idea as yet why Holt felt the need to pelt the judges, but he last tweet was made in december 2012 and expressed an extreme dislike for Piers Morgan, so perhaps it was because of his connection to the show.

    She was an idiot, ruining someone’s moment like that. Still, she has ultimately ruined her own prospects after doing that. I doubt many will employ her after her stunt.

  2. Justin says:

    I thought it was hilarious, good on her

    • jonnyp198 says:

      ow was it ‘good on her’, she’ll never have work like that again and shes embarrassed herself and her family and friends.

      Shes a horrible person and utterly selfish to ruin Richard and Adams chance on the competition, disgraceful human being and if you think that this is ‘good on her’ then you are to

    • Justin says:

      Oh lighten up, no one died

      • jonnyp198 says:

        yes but shes ruined someones chances of winning something … inexcusable

        why couldn’t she have done it after the act? no one get hurt?

      • Justin says:

        If anything she helped them get more votes. It was definitely my favourite performance

      • jonnyp198 says:

        controversial, it took away the fact it was a serious act an no one focuses on the act just some idiot who deserves no good.

      • Justin says:

        Think about it what’s more likely.

        1. People saw that and voted for them, feeling sorry for them.

        2. Or people went “Well they were my favourite, but that egg throwing put me right off, I’m voting for someone else.

        If the incident hadn’t have happened they would have already been forgotten about.

        As it happens they’re enjoying a bit more exposure.

      • jonnyp198 says:

        they said they were disappointed with what happened so clearly they didnt want this and say what you will this petit lady is an idiot and by arguing for her you;ve proved you to are an idiot to

      • Justin says:

        I’m not sure what her being small has to do with it…

        Name calling? Disgraceful!

  3. Jeremy Dutton says:

    Extraordinary that a musician could disturb fellow musicians vital performance. Good job for her sake that they’ve closed all the loony bins. If it was a publicity stunt, it backfired, and she may find getting a job even as a waitress problematical.

    • Anon says:

      Its worrying that a waitress is the bottom of the pile of jobs to you – theres no dishonour in that line work. Perhaps maybe a port-a-loo maintenance worker, or crime-scene cleaners – theyre pretty awful jobs in comparison, but I get your point nonetheless ;)

      She is pretty much unemployable to anyone that reads the news and remembers her name or face. Still, she’ll be in a few papers for one day, at best get an interview with some low rent TV show or on a slow news day and then spend the rest of her life as ‘that egg girl’ that no-one can respect. And either her bandmates support her and collectively never get hired again or they smarten up and kick out the ‘loose-cannon. She should feel sorry for the two lads whose act she successfully tainted.

  4. bobAjob says:

    She should never work in the industry again

  5. sally gill says:

    cannot believe she is stupid enough to do that and leave a mobile no on her linkedin account

  6. Andy C says:

    She’s gonna make the headlines of all the Sunday Tabloids tomorrow, and we’ll all forget who really won. Well done Nat!

    • jonnyp198 says:

      yes well done nat for embarrassing herself, her family and her friends and for ruining her career so yeah congratulations nat, what a pointless comment from you

  7. Angela says:

    I am getting the impression that this girl had a mental breakdown- it was a self-destructive act and she was already a successful musician -she knows it won’t help her career in the type of professional circle she’s in.Maybe someday she’ll cringe when she sees it.

  8. Gill Morris says:

    I think it was something that a loser does and hard to believe that this successful woman would wreck her career over this stunt!

  9. PMP says:

    The story goes she made it through the first stages of BGT, but didn’t make it to boot camp. It kind of corroborates with her hate of Piers Morgan as he used to work on the show.

  10. Margaret Peddar says:

    Whatever her reasons, it was unforgivable to do something that might have ruined another act’s performance.

  11. Gill Morris says:

    Mind you, i do see the funny side as i don’t like Simon Cowell much, Lol.

  12. Anne T says:

    What disgraceful behaviour! How dare she try to ruin such a wonderful performance by Richard and Adam, and well done to the boys for managing to continue without fault. Whatever her motives she was completely, and utterly selfish!!

  13. Jemma Bond says:

    That egg girl should be ashamed of herself. I actually thought it was part of the act at first because at the opera people throw flowers. Because of her, people will forget the true winners of the show. Yes, she was rejected by Simon years ago, but why ruin Richard and Adam’s chance? I hope she never works in this town again. What a looser. Oh, and those two boys should be knighted for carrying on despite the distraction.

  14. Mary says:

    Well…. that was uneggspected!! she really humiliated herself but well done to her getting up there and egging and for smiling through it.

  15. Rosie says:

    Ok, il be the first to admit i had a giggle, if for nothing but the pure shock of what i was seeing! But lets have it right – what an absolute idiot of a woman!! She’s THIRTY years old!?!?! Christ thats disturbing. Grow up you nutter! Well done to the boys for carrying on.

  16. dave milestone says:

    Something more to this than meets the eye ! I recon Simon has slept with her, or has tried it on and I dare say now has paid her off ! lol

  17. Jay Slater says:

    finally someone realises whats going on (dave milestone). obviously simon has done something naughty to her…why else would she do something like that. the eggs were only directed at simon. i smell a dirty rat.

    • Susan says:

      well David and Alesha weren’t on the panel when she was rejected, she is also angry at Piers so it must have been the Simon/Piers/Amanda lineup when she auditioned

  18. liam gallagher says:

    shes mad fer it!!!!

  19. Tommy says:

    What wonderful news, finally someone gives it back to the trash talking, egotistical, a-hole Simon Coward who never discovered a talent in his whole career, it made my fricken life! I am sure Ms. Seymour was pleased , too!

  20. Linda says:

    What an idiot. Her musical life is over just for a few seconds of fame. The only place she can perform now is on the street corners. That is if someone doesn’t egg her.

    • Telsy says:

      It is that devil in a white dress Simon Coward who should never have a career, he and Randy Jackson for years played pretenders, the only thing that would have made this better, was if Simon was sitting on Randy’s lap with a stiff one when it happen.

  21. Heidi says:

    Well, that was really something!! What a complete silly thing to do.. Not only to herself by sabotaging a great career, but by also distrupting a great performance and ruining the chances of Richard and Adam! Shame on you!! Did she not realise that everyone would take to twitter that very second, and the poor lads wouldn’t get a look in.. And to say you are 30 years old.. Such a childish act!!

  22. Martin says:

    Egg girl was the only reason Richard and Adam made the top three! They should thank her as there was far better acts!

  23. Tone says:

    Has everyone got no sense of humor or something? this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time haha! She looks so happy, she loves it!! I bet she gets booked more now for this.

    • Sally says:

      are you mad? how was it funny to see a 30 year old!! yes 30, throw eggs at someone. I thought she was a teenager, it was such a disgraceful, immature and stupid act. It will not help her career in the slightest!

      • Justin says:

        Disgraceful? Perhaps. Immature? Undoubtably. Stupid act? Yeah. Ruined her career? Of course. Is a member of the orchestra getting up mid-performances and throwing eggs at Simon Cowell live on prime time funny? HELL YEAH!

  24. Kathryn says:

    She is an absolute embarrassment. A grown woman acting like that in public. Makes me cringe just thinking about it.
