Black Eyed Peas New Year Blackout

The Black Eyed Peas were reportedly left in the dark whilst performing at a private New Year’s Eve gig in the Caribbean.

The four-piece were hired to play at the party hosted by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich at his luxurious estate on the island of St Barts.

However as the clock struck midnight the peas set was brought to halt after the venue was hit by a power cut.

A source told New York column Page Six, "Everyone screamed, 'Happy New Year,' and then it (the power) went off. Fergie started chanting, 'I Got a Feeling,' and everyone followed. It was a long time in a way, but the power came back."

The peas continued the performance when the power returned, bringing in 2011 with stars including Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.
