Burlesque London Premiere report

14 December 2010

The Fan Carpet are excited to bring to you footage from last nights Leicester Square take over of Burlesque. The star studded pink carpet event was attended by the stars of the film Christina Aguilera, Cam Gigandet, Kristen Bell and the legend that is Cher!

Sporting flame red hair Cher, who is famed for her amazing voice as well as acting in films including Mermaids, The Witches of Eastwick and 2003's comedy Stuck on You said about the film "It had a great feeling to it, it's just fun! That's all it is; a lot of fun."

While first time actress Christina Aguilera said when asked about her co stars "I am so blessed to be able to share the screen with such talented and amazing people. Cher did nothing but make me feel comfortable and at ease every single day."

Burlesque is out on Friday, and is the story of Ali (Christina Aguilera) a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. 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. Burlesque's outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and garners the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a bartender and fellow musician. 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. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal.
