The 2019 Grammys are starting off with a bang!

The group of performers was an global one: Cabello was born in Cuba and immigrated to the U.S.as a child, Martin is Puerto Rican and reggae singer Balvin hails from Colombia. Cabello opened for Taylor Swift's massive Reputation Tour this summer and fall. Cabello whirls around a stage created to resemble the midcentury Havana that Cabello's own grandmother grew up in, with each "room" of the house featuring another surprise guest. She and a troupe of dancers cavorted about a dollhouse-like set before they exited to the "street", where they executed "West Side Story"- and "Bye Bye Birdie"-style choreography before being joined by Young Thug".

During Camila Cabello, J Balvin and Ricky Martin's performance of "Havana", an extra sat on a bench reading a prop newspaper with the headline, "Build bridges not walls". Sharing the stage with some of the hottest new acts and iconic musical legends, Cabello's performance is a tribute to the achievement of Latinx artists in music.

The Havana singer made sure to show off the stunning backless design of her dress and wore her hair styled back into a low ponytail, along with huge diamond earrings that boasted huge pink gems.
