Singer Christina Aguilera has signed on to make her television acting debut in a February sweeps episode of CSI: New York.

"Christina's a fan of the show, and we're excited to have her," CSI: NY executive producer and co-creator Anthony E. Zuiker told TV Guide, who reveal the news in their November 20 issue. The magazine said that Aguilera is still only in talks to appear on the show, but Zuiker has already decided on a topic for the episode: "The episode will probably explore the topic of battered women."

Unlike other pop singers such as Britney Spears or Mandy Moore, Aguilera has never tried acting before. She was recently rumored to be trying to land a part in a big-screen film about 1950s B-movie star Jeanne Carmen, but the CSI: New York episode will definitely mark the first time she will ever act on TV. In addition, the episode's soundtrack will feature some of Aguilera's music.

The topic of battered women is one that has long been important to Aguilera. She has previously done charity work to aid women's shelters, and has sung about she and her mother facing abuse at the hands of her father.
