Simon Cowell was hit by eggs during the finale of "Britain’s Got Talent," with a viola player getting up from her seat in the orchestra and throwing eggs at the host, reports EW.com’s Inside TV.
The incident took place while Richard and Adam Johnson sang an operatic version of "The Impossible Dream," with a backup orchestra accompanying them.
The violist, Natalie Holt, was a contestant on the show last year, the piece notes. Cowell had to change his jacket after the incident, about which he said, "I tweeted yesterday that I didn’t like eggs. Now I really don’t like them."
Here’s the clip, with the egging taking place near the end of the performance:
