Christina Aguilera Belts One Out in New ‘Burlesque’ Clip (VIDEO)

Christina Aguilera might be dipping her toe into the acting pool, but she still knows her way around a tune.

A new clip from the Bionic singer’s upcoming film Burlesque (in theaters November 24) has been released, featuring Aguilera wrapping her powerful pipes around the Etta James chestnut “Something’s Got a Hold on Me.”

In the film, Aguilera plays aspiring songbird Ali, who finds work at Los Angeles’ The Burlesque Lounge (run by Tess, as portrayed by Cher), but discovers that life in the striptease business isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. (Who knew?)

Check out Aguilera belting out “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” in the clip below:

And just for comparison, feast your ears on James performing the song in 1962:
