Those Twitter jokes that y’all were tweeting about Beyoncé “blowing out the lights” in the Superdome might be true after all. Boomer Esiason, a CBS TV analyst who covered the Super Bowl said on his radio show this morning that he was told that Beyoncé caused two power outages at the Superdome during her rehearsals. According to Esiason.

“The interesting thing is, about five or six minutes prior to I guess the breaker going, where our radio booth was up on the seventh floor, we were almost at the ceiling of the dome, and Kevin says to me, ‘Man, do you hear that buzzing?’ And I took my headset off and there was this like electrical buzz sound coming from the ceiling. This was after halftime, it was after Beyonce.”

“And by the way, Beyoncé blew the electric in the Superdome twice, I’m told, during her rehearsals during the week.”

It will be interesting to see how the NFL spins this. One person who seems to definitely believe this is Beyoncé’s hubby, Jay-Z, tweeting the following after the lights went out.

Here is full Beyoncé performance.
