It’s Saturday night and the biggest talent show of the year on British TV.
Cue the music, cue the acts, cue the eggs!
Whilst North Wales opera act ‘Richard and Adam‘ sang on stage and headed towards the final verse of their performance, the doors behind them opened and a choir joined in the singing.
Viola player Natalie Holt ran from the orchestra straight between the singing opera stars and began throwing items at the seated judges. Numerous eggs were thrown towards Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.
Producers quickly cut away from the action whilst the opera singers seemlessly continued their performance regardless of what else was happening on stage.
Natalie Holt was on stage as part of the backing orchestra ‘Raven Quartet’ – where she was bundled off stage by security guards while the finalists continued singing their version of The Impossible Dream.
After the performance Simon Cowell was seen jacketless and it looked like the stage invader got at least one direct hit!
Im sure everything got cleared up in time for Britains Got Eggstra Talent on ITV2!
It has since been revealed that Raven Quartet have previously auditioned for Britains Got Talent and have blogged about the experience here:-
