Christina Aguilera Sings the Etta James Classic “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” in New Clip from BURLESQUE

     August 11, 2010

A new clip from writer/director Steve Antin’s Burlesque has landed online and boasts what appears to be one of the film’s strongest elements: Grammy-winner and pop icon Christina Aguilera’s incredible voice. In the film, Aguilera plays Ali, an aspiring singer who moves to Los Angeles to chase her dreams of becoming a star. While the film’s elevator pitch may sound less than groundbreaking, you really don’t need to add much more beyond, “…and then Christina Aguilera sings a few numbers, some while scantily dressed as a burlesque dancer.”

Joining Aguilera in her first big screen appearance are Kristin Bell, Cam Gigandet, Eric Dane, Stanley Tucci, Peter Gallagher, and the apparently immortal Cher. Burlesque hits theaters on November 24th, 2010. Watch the first trailer from the film here, and check out the new clip of Aguilera singing the Etta James classic “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” after the jump.
