Tonight’s show was rocked with a scandalous egg throwing moment dubbed ‘egg gate’, but that wasn’t enough to stop true talent shining through. After 11 amazing acts performed, Attraction emerged victorious after securing the viewers vote.
Their audition and semi-final performances left everyone’s eyes filled with tears, tonight everyone’s hearts was full of pride as Attraction put on a patriotic performance that lead to them being crowned the winner. They will now share a £250,000 prize and will perform at the prestigious Royal Variety Show.
The Hungarian shadow dancers’ final performance was their chance to show Britain how grateful they were for the country embracing them and taking them into their hearts. With union jacks, Churchill and The Queen featured, it was a performance every Briton can be proud of.
The judges were obviously full of high praise with Amanda saying: “you couldn’t have done a better performance...You’ve embraced Britain and we embrace you back!”
Simon added that “you really know how to pull on the heartstrings”, whilst David said that it was “fantastically moving.” And to top off the praise, Alesha said that it was “the main attraction tonight... epic!”
But Attraction faced stiff competition from the other contestants, including Francine Lewis, Pre Skool and Wildcard winner Steve Hewlett. And it seemed everyone upped their game for the final.

Jack Carroll, was a worthy runner up after his comedy act left the judges in stitches. After making gags on everything from the Olympics to rival show The Voice, fellow comedian David Walliams told the 14 year-old: “you are one of my favourite comedians... you are going to go on to become a comedy superstar!”
Completing the top 3 were talented brothers Richard and Adam, whose performance almost left their Nan (who is their biggest fan), fit to burst with joy. However, their song was overshadowed by a girl storming the stage to throw eggs at the judges!
The lady in question seemed to emerge from either the choir or the orchestra and proceeded to throw eggs, mainly in the direction of Simon Cowell. After successfully hitting Simon (and ruining his jacket in the process), she was dragged off stage by security.
Ant and Dec commended the brothers for carrying on the performance despite the intrusion- now dubbed as #egggate. Well, that’s live television for you!
The exciting final also featured musical performances from special guest Psy who performed his track ‘Gentleman’ and an exclusive duet between Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.
Attraction closed the show by sharing their winning performance once again.
They were hot favourites to win the show despite receiving criticism for not being British. However, it was the case of triumph over adversity and following their win, Attraction’s lead dancer Zoltan thanked the British public for voting.
So there you have it, Britain’s Got Talent is over for another year and what a show it has been! Bring on next year!
