Camila Cabello knows how to get the party started.

The two-time nominee opened the 2019 Grammy Awards with a sizzling performance featuring Latin superstars J Balvin, Ricky Martin and world-renowned Cuban-American trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.

Cabello kicked off the performance with her hit single “Havana” in a bright yellow two-piece dress. She was accompanied by Young Thug — and a surprise appearance by her sister and dad on the stage while sitting in the background as she performed.

Martin looked suave in a white three-piece suit as he joined Cabello on the stage singing his hit “Pegate” with Sandoval.

International sensation Balvin added his own flavor with “Mi Gente.”

A few days before her big performance, Cabello teased the “surprises” that she had planned at an intimate show in Los Angeles. The singer said she was looking forward to soaking in every moment from her time on stage at the ceremony.

“But the priceless moment I’m looking for, I really just want to enjoy it. That is my resolution for this year,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

“If something’s really important to you and you really, really care about it, don’t forget to just soak it in. Because sometimes you can keep working for something and you do it, you do it right, but it doesn’t mean that you necessarily super let yourself go and let yourself enjoy it. So, that’s what I really want… to enjoy it and have it be a celebration of my first album and ‘Havana’ and everything that song has done in my life.”
