It’s been one of the strangest series yet of Britain’s Got Talent with foreign contestants, acts who have already had successful careers and much more besides and last nights final was no exception. The inevitable win by Hungarian shadow troupe Attraction was overshadowed by former contestant Natalie Holt (who appeared on the show last year with her classical music group Raven Quartet) who stormed the stage during the live final (during the performance of brothers Richard and Adam) and hurled eggs at Simon Cowell.
Cowell shrugged the incident off and carried on after removing his egg covered jacket, fellow judge Amanda Holden was less kind and branded Natalie “a stupid cow”. Holt later apologised for her actions.
Meanwhile further controversy has been stirred up with Attraction, who are Hungarian, taking out the main prize. Their Shadow routines have definitely been amazing but they, like fellow finalist Francine Lewis and her long established career on TV, have already established themselves throughout Europe. All of which taints the notion somewhat of a talent show for newcomers to the industry.
Runner up was teenage comedian Jack O’Connell and Attraction will now perform in front of the Queen at this years Royal Variety Performance.
