Super Bowl power outage not Beyonce's fault: NFL commissioner

New York, Feb. 5 (ANI): Beyonce wasn't responsible for the lights going out during a 34-minute power outage on Sunday during the halftime show at the Super Bowl in New Orleans, according to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFL did not release a statement at any time during or after the delay, which occurred shortly after Beyonce's performance. The Ravens opened up the second half of the game with a kickoff return for a touchdown before half of the lights at the New Orleans Superdome went out, reports the New York Post.

Goodell said a member of the Superdome's power company told him that there was actually less power being used during her performance than up to that point because it was running on generators, and not using the Superdome's power.

After the delay, the 49ers scored the next 17 points of the game, but the The Ravens held on for a 34-31 victory. It was the tenth Super Bowl to be played in New Orleans, and the seventh at the Superdome and Goodell said the incident won't have an effect on the city getting future Super Bowls. (ANI)
