Beyonce - Beyonce Cleared Of Causing Super Bowl Blackout

Beyonce's showstopping concert at the Super Bowl on Sunday (03Feb13) did not cause a blackout in the second half of the match.

The Crazy in Love hitmaker wowed the crowds at half-time with renditions of her greatest hits, as well as a reunion with her Destiny's Child bandmates, in a pyrotechnics-packed performance.

After the spectacle, the Superdome venue in New Orleans, Lousiana was plunged into darkness as the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers played the second half.

Some viewers accused Beyonce's set of causing the outage, but National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell insists she's not to blame for the blackout.

He says, "There's no indication at all that this was caused by the half-time show. I know that's out there, that Beyonce's half-time show had something to do with it. That is not the case from anything we have at this point."

The game and Beyonce's performance pulled in an estimated 108 million viewers around the globe, making it the third most watched Super Bowl after last year's (12), when Madonna performed, and 2010's, which featured The Who.
