Blame Beyonce: CBS Host Says Singer 'Blew the Electric' Twice During Rehearsals
Boomer Esiason, the former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback and co-host "The NFL Today" on CBS, said Beyonce's halftime performance may have been responsible for the 34-minute blackout during Sunday's Super Bowl between Baltimore and San Francisco.
“And by the way, Beyonce blew the electric in the Superdome twice, I’m told, during her rehearsals during the week," Esiason said on Monday on his radio show.
Esiason recalled there was a buzzing sound in the Superdome shortly after Beyonce's halftime show.
On his "Boomer & Carton" radio show, Esiason said about "five or six minutes prior to" the "the breaker going," Kevin Harlan, a CBS announcer who was at the game, told him, "Man, do you hear that buzzing?"
"And I took my headset off and there was this like electrical buzz sound coming from the ceiling," Esiason said. "This was after halftime, it was after Beyonce."
