Don’t get it twisted: New Jersey has always been a breeding ground for genius-level artistic talent. Need I name drop Meryl Streep, Whitney Houston, Queen Latifah, Bruce Springsteen, Lauryn Hill, and Two Headed Monster of course! But now more than ever, Jersey and more specifically, Newark, seems to be the place where talent resides! What am I getting at? America’s Got Talent of course! That’s right, the monster hit reality competition definitely has a little Newark flavor this year since it now broadcasts live every Tuesday and Wednesday from NJPAC, and will continue there through the finale on Sept. 19. Producers have totally transformed the mainstage of NJPAC to house the popular show, while the contestants and crew are being housed at the Robert Treat Hotel right across the street!
Another example that Jersey’s got reality show talent? Fresh off of his win of the brand new reality competition Duets, singer J. Rome has been spotted for the past two Sundays at Christian Love Baptist Church in Irvington. Apparently, he’s decided to make Essex County his home while he basks in the glow of his win and works on his upcoming project.
It’s official! Newark’s Got Reality Show Talent!
