If you caught the finale of Britain's Got Talent you were probably wondering, did that just happen?!

Yup. Simon Cowell got egged.

A woman who appeared to be a backup singer opted to use her moment on stage to pelt Simon and fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams with eggs during an opera performance on the U.K. show by Richard and Adam Johnson.

The woman was then escorted off the stage. "Natalie Holt (age 30) was part of the backing group for their performance, and as a result of her misguided actions the police were called," a BGT rep said in a statement. "However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage."

Holt herself scrambled to release a statement saying: "I want to apologize to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance. I've never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realized it was a silly thing to do."
