Beyonce did not blow out the lights at the Super Bowl.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the halftime show is not to blame for the power failure to the Superdome in the second half of the Super Bowl. Doug Thornton of SMG, the company that manages the Superdome, says Beyonce's show was running on its own generator.

He says metered power consumption went down during halftime because the house lights were off.
