On Thanksgiving Day at the big game between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions, the power went out during the halftime show put on by Brothers Osborne.

The country duo managed to let out just a few notes before the game went into technical chaos.


A representative from DTE, a Detroit-based energy company, informed everyone that the company was working to identify the cause of the outage, while a representative at Ford Field said the power outage was  “due to an outside utility failure” and that the halftime show delay was “due to the time it took to reset and reconnect the sound system transmitter.”

Of course, while the game had its technical intermission, many took to Twitter to address the power outage situation. One user claimed the power outage was an opportunity for those who did not know  who Brothers Osborne were to do some quick research, while another user stated that the Brothers Osborne power outage was more awkward than Ashley Simpson‘s SNL appearance.
