After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club's proprietor and headliner.

With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage.

Kristen Bell Talks About Going Brunette for ‘Burlesque’
In upcoming movie Burlesque, also starring Cher and Christina Aguilera, blonde stunner Kristen Bell had to cover up her golden locks and summon her inner vixen for the role. She talked to InStyle about the experience and dished on the on-set goss. “When I had the wig on I didn’t even recognise myself in the mirror. I felt like another person,” she revealed about her role as Nikki, a jealous dancer plotting to destroy Christina’s character. “Now I’m over being blonde. If I’m well received as a brunette in Burlesque then maybe I’ll go brunette [in real life]!” The actress also reveals that although she plays a sultry stage performer, wearing barely-there costumes during her raunchy dance routines, there weren’t any real divas on the movie set.
Welcome to the latest round of reader opinions! This week, the campy Burlesque trailer rubbed some of you the wrong way (while others are already clamoring for tickets), and as another season of The Bachelorette came to a close, suggestions for the next Bachelor came flooding in. But perhaps the most divisive subject? No surprise here, it's Twilight. Keep reading to see where your fellow entertainment enthusiasts stand. The Burlesque trailer: awesomely bad, or just bad? "It looks so campy! I can't wait. I love Christina, so I'm excited to hear the music for it."
First trailer for 'Burlesque' Starring Christina Aguilera
I can't wait to see this! Christina Aguilera looks like she may pull this role off and as always had a lovely singing voice as well. I love Cher so much and I love movies with singing and dancing and I have a feeling this one is going to be one of my faves.
Christina Aguilera Schools Cher in Burlesque Trailer
What do you get when you mix two of the hottest divas of all time, sexy dancing and some sizzling costars? The trailer for Burlesque! Christina Aguilera plays your typical small-town girl with dreams of making her way into showbiz. So, of course, she gets a waitressing job at an L.A. burlesque club run by Cher, which allows Xtina to display her Grammy-winning pipes. And voilà, stardom!
One of the worst crimes that a movie trailer can commit is giving away too much about the film that it's meant to promote. Witness the trailer to Free Willy, which ends with Willy being freed. Or the Soylent Green trailer, which asks "What is Soylent Green?" and then shows us Charlton Heston staring agog at a people factory. Or the trailer for The Sixth Sense that's introduced by Bruce Willis, with a bedsheet over his head, saying "Hello, I'm Bruce Willis and I died several years ago." - And now we can add the trailer for Christina Aguilera's new movie Burlesque to the list. It shamelessly rattles through the entire plot from beginning to end, ruining the big surprise that (Spoiler Alert) Christina Aguilera can sing reasonably well.
'Twilight' star Cam Gigandet appears in new 'Burlesque' trailer
