Christina Aguilera in Burlesque

In this video, watch Christina Aguilera in Burlesque as she belts out her rendition of "Something's Got a Hold On Me" by Etta James.

On August 11, 2010 a clip of Aguilera performing the Etta James classic, "Something's Got a Hold on Me" from the film Burlesque was released. The original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which has 12 songs, produced by Christina Aguilera, Samuel Dixon, Sia Furler, DJ Premier, Tricky Stewart, Danja, Salaam Remi, and Linda Perry will be released on November 16, 2010 by RCA Records.

Burlesque, an upcoming American contemporary musical film, slated for release on November 24, 2010, is directed and written by Steve Antin, starring Christina Aguilera (as the lead character Ali), Cher, Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet, Julianne Hough, Alan Cumming, Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci and others.

In the film Christina Aguilera plays the role of Ali Rose, a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to Los Angeles. Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), a former dancer who struggles to keep the nightclub open, of the ‘The Burlesque Lounge’, a majestic but ailing theater. There Ali builds a friendship with a dancer named Georgia (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer Nikki (Kristen Bell), and gets the affection of a bartender and fellow musician (Aguilera's love interest), Jack (Cam Gigandet). With the help of the nightclub's manager Sean (Stanley Tucci), and Alexis (Alan Cumming), Ali finds her way from the bar to the stage. However, her spectacular voice restores the ailing The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before the charismatic entrepreneur Marcus Gerber (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal.
