Still doubting the magnificent cinematic piece of genius that is Burlesque, the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner of 2010? Well, doubt no more—after the jump, watch Christina Aguilera perform a loud-and-proud cover of Etta James’ “Something’s Got A Hold On Me” from the Burlesque soundtrack. We’re taking it this clip is an actual scene from the film, and if it is—hoo boy, it’s going to be a long night at the movies.

Christina Aguilera – “Something’s Got A Hold On Me”

Christina’s voice is, as usual, amazing, and performing bombastic hits from the past is really where Aguilera seems most in her element.

But as either a music video or a scene from a movie… could they not have given Xtina anything else to do except flimsily shimmy in a room and sing into a microphone? Do the producers of Burlesque understand that a movie is not a concert and something else needs to happen to keep the audience’s attention throughout an entire song? You know, like, having her enter another room and flimsily shimmy in there for awhile, at the very least?
