Camila Cabello has performed her hit single, 'Havana', at big events more times than we can count, and each time she adds a little twist.

The 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards were no different. 

"Every time I’ve performed this song, I’ve done something different. It just takes me to that really sexy, sensual place," Camila said before her performance.

The 21-year-old channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe during her sultry live appearance.

Camila recreated Marilyn's iconic 'Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend' look from the 1953 movie, 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'.

Dressed in a pink dress with a high slit, thigh-high boots, and cat-eye sunglasses, Camila strutted her stuff on stage in the identical look. 

Madonna also recreated Marilyn's outfit in her 'Material Girl' video, and Camila appears to have drawn inspiration from both women. 

'Havana' is currently at number 28 on the Coca-Cola Top 40. Camila also has a another song on the chart. Her latest single, 'Never be the Same', hit the number one spot on Saturday.
