NFL: Beyoncé not the cause of Super Bowl blackout

NEW YORK (AP) -- Don't blame Beyoncé for blowing the lights out at the Super Bowl.

Bing: Beyoncé announces world tour

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday that the halftime show was "absolutely not" the cause of the power outage that darkened the Superdome for half an hour during Sunday's broadcast.

Beyoncé was the halftime performer at Sunday night's game and used plenty of power to light up the stage. Some had joked that her electrifying performance was to blame for the outage.

Beyoncé's 13-minute set included hits "Crazy in Love," ''Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and a Destiny's Child reunion.

In my opinion, Alicia Keyes and Jennifer Hudson "sounded" live and Beyonce did not.  My question is:  Why can't people just sing/play without all the pyrotechnics, etc.?  Some bands/groups/singles do this really well.  Others NEED all the attention all the time. 

 

I do understand that in some cases, e.g., cold weather, prerecording is needed, but not at the Super Bowl, Grammys, Oscars, etc.  I believe these people think they can't make a mistake or people will not like it.  However, lip synching(sp) is much worse than simply making a mistake which everybody does, everyday and they recover.

This star is so confused... is she illuminati or what?? I don't think she even knows! She's playing both sides of the fence.  Her half time show with all her illuminati symbolism and then says GOD BLESS YOU ALL. Give me a break! Save it girl... Us Christians don't need your blessings by all means!
