A small town singer, Ali (Christina Aguilera), moves to the big city for her chance at stardom where she is enchanted by Burlesque, a glamorous nightclub packed with dancers, sizzling music (like ‘I’m A Good Girl’), and an owner (Cher) in need of a star. Jam-packed with visually stunning musical numbers and an all-star cast featuring Eric Dane, Kristen Bell and Stanley Tucci.
Writer/Director Steve Antin got the idea for this film after watching Christina Aguilera perform as a featured vocalist for The Pussycat Dolls in 2002.
The photo of seven-year-old Ali with her mother is actually a photo of a much younger Christina Aguilera with her real-life mother, Shelly Kearns.
Christina Aguilera’s first choice for the role of Nikki was Emma Stone.
Tess asks Sean what happened to all the good dancers in LA, to which he responds Dancing with the Stars. Their cast mate on this film, Julianne Hough, is one of the professional dancers on the Emmy-Winning show. – Edited from IMDB
