Goofs
You can hear feedback when Ali is onstage and Nikki sabotages the speakers. There wouldn't be feedback because the speakers have been disconnected. Feedback is usually caused by microphones, not speaker cables. Additionally, since the dancers were supposed to be lip-syncing at this point, the microphones on stage would not be live. Even a voice as strong as Ali's would not be heard over the noise in the bar or the band playing.

The premise of the plot rests partly on Ali replacing a newly-pregnant dancer, Georgia. The movie's time line takes course over two months (or less), and in that short time, Georgia becomes pregnant, engaged and married (in that order), also returning to perform with Ali at the Burlesque Lounge during the finale (supposedly back from maternity leave, which would be impossible). This contradicts the plot line in which Tess must come up with enough money to save the club in thirty days. (In the same day, she sells the air rights above the Burlesque Lounge and buys out her partner's share, Jack finishes writing his song and Ali performs it, during which a whippet-thin Georgia appears as a dancer despite showing during the wedding a few days earlier.)

Natalie would not have been able to get inside the apartment the day after Georgia's wedding, because Jack put the chain on the door.
