Luckily the women soon found out it was just a city-wide blackout, with the concert cancelled as a result.   

Afterwards, Jennifer Lopez said she was ‘heartbroken’ and ‘devastated’ to cancel her sold-out concert at Madison Square Garden due to the power outage in Manhattan on Saturday.

The two-time Grammy nominee was about four songs into her second show at the famed venue when the lights went out around 9:30 pm EST and the building was evacuated.
