Richard and Adam Living The Impossible Dream After Britain's Got Talent

TV talent show winners haven’t been so successful of late; think The X-Factor’s James Arthur and The Voice’s Leanne Mitchell. But Britain’s Got Talent Winners – Richard and Adam – have topped the U.K album charts following their third-place finish on Britain’s Got Talent.

In doing so, they beat another talent-show product, x factor runner-up Jahmene Douglas, off the top spot. Richard and Adam’s profile was raised somewhat when a woman ran on stage to throw eggs at Simon Cowell for his influence on the music business.

Their album - The Impossible Dream - features hearty renditions of The Power of Love, Unchained Melody, Amazing Grace and Ave Maria. "It's amazing - you've made our Nan extremely happy, so thank you to each and everyone of you who's bought the album," Adam told the Official Charts Company.

I’m Sorry, Actually No I’m Not! – Britain’s Got Talent Egger Withdraws Apology


Simon Cowell Britain's Got Talent

The public apology following Natalie Holt’s eggy protest against Simon Cowell on the Britain’s Got Talent final seemed to draw a line under the matter, but having reconsidered her apology, the 30-year-old violinist has decided to take it right back.

“I planned to do it once the song was finished but I got a bit nervous and went slightly early, she explained of her stunt. “I sincerely apologise for overshadowing their moment as well as to anyone watching who felt that their evening’s entertainment was marred or even ruined,” she added, before a vital caveat was revealed. “However, I am not sorry for pelting Simon Cowell with eggs. I think he has too much power and influence in the entertainment industry. I felt that, on behalf of musicians everywhere, this is an institution and a man that needed standing up to.”

Holt claims she has received messaged of support from many high-profile musicians who, for reasons we can all probably understand, are “unwilling to express their support publicly”. She said: “I don’t dislike Cowell personally, I don’t like what he represents.”

Britain’s Got Talent Egg Thrower Is ‘A Stupid Cow’ According to Amanda Holden


Amanda Holden Simon Cowell Britain's Got Talent

She may not have got a single eggy molecule on her dress, but Amanda Holden is furious with Natalie Holt Britain’s Got Talent’s egg-wielding rebel. She labeled her a ‘stupid cow’ as the rest of her bandmates denounced her actions.

It seems some people have forgotten than throwing eggs is funny, and throwing eggs at someone like Simon Cowell is even funnier. But she didn’t just throw eggs at someone like Cowell, it was Cowell. Conclusion? Very, very funny. “During tonight’s show an incident took place during the finale of Richard and Adam’s performance,” said an official statement from the show. “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. However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage.” Holt, too, seems to have forgotten how funny egg chucking is, and has said sorry for her actions. “I want to apologise to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance. I’ve never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realised it was a silly thing to do.”

So Cowell took it well, Richard and Adam continued their performance in a professional manner, no action is being taken against Holt, and Holden still has a sour look on her face, and is calling people cow. Everything’s fine.

Jennifer Lopez gave UK viewers of Simon Cowell's Britains Got Talent a real eyeful on Tuesday night, performing her new single 'Live It Up' while wearing a skimpy black leotard that barely covered her famous behind. Twitter immediately sprang into action, with some parents concerned about the "inappropriate" nature of her performance on what is considered a family show, with some young children actually performing.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson for TV regualtor Ofcom said, "Ofcom can confirm that it has received complaints about the Britain's Got Talent broadcast last night, which we are assessing but not currently investigating." One viewer on Twitter said, "BGT does #jenniferlopez realise it's a family show - only thing missing was the pole - cover up your cheeks please!" though judge Simon Cowell was pretty happy with how things went, telling Lopez, "Seriously, J-Lo. If anyone wants to know how you do it. That's how you do it,' he said. "Seriously world class."

For what it's worth, Lopez herself seemed pretty oblivious to any concerns and happily posted an Instagram of the R&B star being held up by various dancers. "Thanks @GotTalent for a great night #liveitup," she added.

BGT Finalists Aren't Shaken By Bruce Forsyth's Derogatory Comments


Bruce Forsyth Britain's Got Talent Simon Cowell

Britain's Got Talent was blasted by telly host and national treasure Bruce Forsyth this week, with the veteran host commenting on the "damaging" effect appearing on the show could have on children. Despite his words, it seems as though some people involved in this years show have failed to acknowledge Brucie's point, saying they see no potentially harmful side-effects of appearing in the show.

Speaking on Richard Bacon's 5 Live show on Monday (May 27), Brucie said that although he admires the format of BGT, he could never approve of having young children take part. He told Bacon, "To put them on that time of the evening with millions watching, the great big theatre and the emotions - it could be disastrous for a child."

On Monday's live BGT show, Cowell addressed the comments himself, referring to Forsyth as "Mr Grumpy," which is very rich coming from Cowell. Speaking after the performances of young performers Youth Creation and Arisxandra Libantino, who is 11-years-old, he said, "If you've got it, you've got it, who cares how old you are? It was one of the best performances of the night and I'd like to dedicate this one to Bruce."
