Looks like the Mercedes-Benz Superdome wasn't ready for Beyonce's jelly. Following the singer's electrifying halftime show with Destiny's Child at the Feb. 3 Super Bowl, the stadium lost half its power, leaving thousands of fans — not to mention the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers — in near-complete darkness.

The blackout delayed the game for more than 30 minutes. And though broadcasters said the issue was caused by an outside power feed going dead, Twitter had other ideas. Namely, that Beyonce's wild performance had been too hot to handle. Us Weekly rounded up a few of the funniest and best tweets from your favorite stars.

Kelly Clarkson: "The force and power that is Beyonce just shut the Super Bowl down! Too funny!"

Brad Goreski: "Did Beyonce's performance blow out the power in the stadium? She better werk!!! It was all that hair flipping and whipping."


Sherri Shepherd: "Beyonce was so daggone hot, she blew out the power!"

Jimmy Fallon: "Beyonce literally killed it at the Super Bowl."

Christian Siriano: "We are all just standing in the light of Beyonce's halo right now!"

Mark Hoppus: "If you like it then you should have put a fuse in it!"

Andy Cohen: "Beyonce blew the lights out! Did they think that WOULDN'T happen??"
