Simon Cowell was pelted with eggs during the Britain’s Got Talent finale in the UK today. A woman invaded the stage during a performance of "The Impossible Dream" by singing duo the Johnson Brothers and began throwing raw eggs at Simon and the other judges.

A security guard rushed the stage and quickly escorted the woman off stage – while the duo continued to sing – and Simon could be seen standing up, removing his egg-stained jacket and picking shell off his shirt.

At the end of the performance the show’s hosts, Ant and Dec, came out and announced, “We’d just like to point out that was not part of the performance,” and they congratulated singers Richard and Adam Johnson for “carrying on” with their song.

An unimpressed Simon, who is a judge on The X Factor, then told the pair, “I think you could win this competition after that.”

Watch the incident below. Do you think Simon deserved it?
