Video from showed as opera singers finalists Richard and Adam were finishing
an operatic version of "The Impossible Dream," while the woman was escorted off the stage by security guards.

Holt has apologized and has admitted her actions were "silly."

In a statement released by the show she said, "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."
