There was electricity in the air at the “X Factor” auditions in Greensboro, NC today … because the production truck was struck by lightning … our sources has learned.
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.
Producers have suspended the auditions indefinitely … and security is on standby in case the storm gets worse and the judges have to make a quick exit.
