Christina Aguilera will star in her own live performance television special on the U.S. WB network.

Taped earlier this month at London’s Wembley Arena, the one-hour “Stripped… Live in the U.K.” will air Nov. 30 at 9 p.m. ET. According to Aguilera’s official Web site (, the concert will be released Jan. 13 on DVD.

After a stint hosting last week’s MTV Europe Awards, Aguilera was forced to end her U.K. tour early, canceling Nov. 10 -11 shows in Newcastle and Manchester, England, respectively, due to illness. Her world tour will continue Dec. 1 with the first of three shows in Tokyo, then head to Australia, where it will end Dec. 17 in Melbourne.

Aguilera is touring in support of her latest RCA album, “Stripped.” Released in November 2002, the album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and has sold 3.1 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
