Going by how TMZ is spinning this, apparently God isn’t a fan of The X Factor (I’m guessing he’s more into The Voice), and decided to take time out of helping Africa and Darfur to throw lightning at the show’s equipment in order to shut them down (while shaking some sense into judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato with thunderclaps). Although to be fair, if I was an omnipotent being capable of throwing electricity at things I hated, I’d totally hit the set of Two and a Half Men. “Your show has been coasting on mediocrity for way too long! BZZZZT!”
Sources at the scene tell us … a major storm rolled in over the Greensboro Coliseum Complex this afternoon … and knocked out power to the complex. We’re told the lights in the arena went out during the auditions. The mics also went dead. Sources say some of the judges — including Britney Spears and Demi Lovato — were freaked out because of the thunder … and are now hiding out in their dressing rooms.
Oh lord, can you imagine being the guy auditioning on stage when the lightning struck and knocked out all the power? Honestly, you cannot get a more blatant message that your dreams are wrong then having an act of God strike them down in front of an auditorium full of people. That’s gotta hurt.
