Only in Jersey: 2/21/12

Happy Fat Tuesday!  It’s time for another edition of Only in Jersey!

If it’s filming in Jersey, takes place in Jersey, or is about celebs from Jersey, you will find it here.

All four judges of NBC’s “The Voice” – Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine – last night battled to add Wall native Charlotte Sometimes to their team after hearing her rendition of OneRepublic’s “Apologize.” “Charlotte Sometimes? I want you all the time, Charlotte,” teased Christina. “Well, you know, there’s enough of me to go around,” Charlotte replied. But it was Blake, who called her a “unique vocalist,” whom Charlotte ultimately decided to go with.

An exhibit paying tribute to New Jersey son Bruce Springsteen is open in Philadelphia. Now through September 3, The Star-Ledger reports fans can visit “From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen” at the National Constitution Center. The exhibit, which originated at Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, includes over 150 items from the Freehold native’s career.  National Constitution Center President David Eisner explained the reasons for the exhibit: “In the year that marks the 225th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, Springsteen offers a unique and exciting perspective that speaks to what we have with our First Amendment freedoms. Springsteen’s work is all about the American dream. It charts the distance between what we are and where we want to be.” Admission to the exhibit ranges from $12 to $24.50. The National Constitution Center is located at 525 Arch Street. More information is available by calling 215-409-6700 or by visiting its website.

Only a few hours after it reopened, Westfield’s Fairview Cemetery was once closed again to the general public, The Star-Ledger reports, due to an influx of Whitney Houston fans come to pay their respects. Westfield police cited “tremendous traffic problems” and concern by members of Whitney’s family as reason for the closure. While fans were allowed to visit the gravesite Monday morning, by 2 p.m. the entire cemetery was closed to anyone without relatives buried there. And that, Westfield Police Captain Cliff Auchter told the Ledger, is how it will remain until further notice.
