She's likely to raise temperatures when she performs at the AMA's on Sunday with rumoured love interest Lil Wayne.
And Christina Milian was already looking red hot at the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina Festival on Saturday evening.
The 33-year-old singer wowed in a shimmering and very clingy halterneck and skirt combination.
Shimmering: Christina Milian was seen backstage at the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina festival in LA on Saturday
She teamed the outfit with metallic gold heels and accessorised with a black clutch bag and pearl jewelry.
The Dip It Low hit maker pinned her hair up into braids and donned ruby red lipstick as well as lashings of mascara on her almond eyes.
Also hitting the red carpet at the Latin music event was Extra host Mario Lopez as well as crooners Ricky Martin and Pitbull.
E! has reported that Christina will perform alongside rumoured love interest Lil Wayne at Sunday night's American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in LA.
Fresh-faced: Christina, 33, pinned her hair up into braids and donned ruby red lipstick as well lashings of mascara on her thick eyelashes.
Red hot: The mother-of-one looked toned and trim in the skintight ensemble
The rapper will be debuting his new single which the mother-of-one introduced to him to and is also featured on.
Christina teased: 'If you've got a record called Start A Fire, you can just imagine the pyro, there's going to be a huge moment I just have to worry about not tripping.
'I think with the two of us on that stage, there will be fireworks and it will be awesome. We have to really start a fire,' she added.
Red carpet style: TV host Mario Lopez, 41, looked handsome in all black
He loves to talk: Mario Lopez got into the spirit of the event backstage
Too bright? Pitbull went the same route as Mario Lopez sticking to all-black with some matching aviator sunglasses

Hot stuff! The ladies switched up their all white outfits for sexy denim hot pants
Meanwhile, the Bring It On: Fight To The Finish actress is currently 'finishing up' her much-delayed fourth studio album for Young Money, which includes songs with Drop The World rapper Weezy.
Christina was signed to the hit-making label in 2012, six years after the release of her her third album, So Amazin'.
She is also currently filming her own reality show, Christina Milian Turned Up, which will air in 2015 on E! and feature gal pal Karrueche Tran.

Performing at the iHeartRadio event was I Know You Want Me singer Pitbull.

Wearing his classic combination of dark shades and full black outfit, he moved around the stage with girls in white leotards, who were later replaced by girls in denim hot pants.
Laid back style: Singer and rapper Becky G looked cute in a checked shirt dress and thigh-high boots
Ladies night: The ladies of Orange Is The New Black, Dascha Polanco and Selenis Leyva, opted for form-fitting ensembles

The stars were out in force for the 2014 BAFTA Children's Awards on Sunday night, with Myleene Klass leading the way.

Her hair was pulled back into a simple ponytail and she opted to go without jewellery or a bag for a simple yet chic look.

Red carpet ready: The stars were out in force for the 2014 BAFTA Children's Awards on Sunday night, with Myleene Klass leading the way
She became a household name with the success of her former band, Hear'Say back in 2001 and Myleene has recently been talking about whether or not they would reunite.
In an interview with MailOnline, the businesswoman said there are a few obstacles in the way of a reunion.
‘I just think that at any given point that, whatever happens, there will always be two members on rotation who just can’t do it,' she said.
Simple yet chic: Myleene's red and pink embroidered dress flattered her slim frame while her nude heels made her long legs even longer
Dramatic: The TV star pulled her hair back into a severe high ponytail and upped the glamour with a metallic eye shadow and bronze lip gloss
'I think at the moment it’s a resounding no. But, I have learnt to never say never.
‘I love the idea of it for the nostalgia, I love that Take That and S Club 7 have got back together. But, you know, what works for some bands doesn’t work for others.’
At the moment, the star is looking forward to spending Christmas with her family and says her two little girls, Ava and Hero have already spoilt her rotten.
Style star: Actress Samantha Barks was stunning in a netted blue floor-length gown
Beautiful in blue: The Les Miserables breakout star's lace gown perfectly suited her slender frame
'The best gift I've ever received was from my daughters a couple of weeks ago. They made me two walnuts in a Tupperware box and got me two diamonds - for Christmas early, inside walnuts.'
'But all I really want is a happy family Christmas. This year, I'm going to be with my family - there's nothing better to do, than cosying up on the sofa and fighting over the Quality Streets.’
Along with working as a radio presenter, Myleene is also a designer for Littlewoods and loves creating her own garments.
On fire! Myanna Burning was red hot in a strapless jumpsuit and bright lipstick at the bash
Suits you: Sharleen Spiteri rocked up in a spiffy three-piece suit as she celebrated the best in children's film, TV and games
Doting mother: Emma Bunton brought her eldest child, adorable six-year-old Beau, along as her date
She said of the brand: 'It started off as a fashion collection a couple of years ago, and it’s now gone onto electricals, beauty, accessories, shoes, bikinis, lingerie.
‘I’ve already been designing for the spring/summer collection, you have to work really far in advance to get your samples back in time from whichever country you order them from.
'I can already tell there are lots of strong colours and vibrant shades, body con dresses and beautiful A-line skirts.'
Sexy style: Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna wowed in a plunging jumpsuit and black heels
She's in the right place: Children's TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson was one of the many stars at the bash
All smiles: Steve Backshall put in his first public appearance since being eliminated from Strictly

Lewis Hamiton wins Abu Dhabi and wraps up Drivers' Championship after rival Nico Rosberg suffers power failure
- Rosberg started Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from pole position but was overtaken by Hamilton at the first corner
- Rosberg finished outside the points as he suffered power failure with his car and was lapped by his team-mate
- Felipe Massa finished second in his Williams while his team-mate Valtteri Bottas was third
- Jenson Button, in what could be his final grand prix, finished fifth

FINAL CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS
Lewis Hamilton is the King of the Track again. History fell to the 29-year-old from Stevenage under the dark sky of Abu Dhabi, the fireworks greeting only the fourth Britain to win multiple Formula One world titles.
The fourth in the line to the throne – Prince Harry of Wales – went to the pit wall to say: ‘You are an absolute legend.’ They told him, too, that he was Mercedes-Benz’s first champion since a chap called Juan-Manuel Fangio, in 1955. He was the greatest of them all, but Hamilton is hardly a slouch. Hamilton's response was simple - 'Wooo-Hooo...World Champion'.
He even managed to pass Nico Rosberg on the penultimate lap to take the race win and the title by 67 points. Double scoring was an irrelevance, thankfully.

Add Hamilton’s name to Graham Hill, Jim Clark and Sir Jackie Stewart in the pantheon of British double title winners. Six years separated Hamilton’s first and second championships, but now the greatness he promised as a rookie of prodigious gifts has been rewarded as richly as his talent warrants.
The race had been set up perfectly by Rosberg searing to pole position by of 0.386sec 24 hours before. Saturday has been his day all year.
But it is Sunday that counts and after a weekend of fraying nerves, it took Hamilton even less time – a blink of an eye – to establish a lead in the race. Rosberg was stuck to his grid place like glue. Hamilton powered ahead, swept to his right in front of Rosberg and flew threw the first left-hand corner.
By the time Rosberg came round it, Hamilton was in Dubai. Or another planet.
A weekend of visible jitters, exasperated answers in press conferences, and false protestations that he was cooler than a cucumber in a tumbler of Hendrick’s – all consigned to history in one faultless move.
From that moment on the grid until the end of the 55th and concluding lap, the outcome seemed inevitable.
But, still, we held our breath for we had been to the brink of championship glory before with Lewis, the master of suspense. In 2007 he started the last race seven points ahead of Kimi Raikkonen only to suffer gearbox failure, finish seventh and miss the title by a one point.

A year later, he again took a seven-point lead into the finale, this time in Interlagos, against Felipe Massa. Hamilton was in sixth place as Massa crossed the line but scampered through the rain to move up to third on the final lap. There is more drama around this boy than Shakespeare.
So, heavens, we could not entirely discount the unpredictable, even though Rosberg has converted just three of his 10 poles into victory this season.
How must it have felt for Hamilton’s family who were late arrivals at the track, despite being told by their son he was better focused going to work without them being attendance? His father Anthony paced up and down as his wont. Nicole Scherzinger, step-mother Linda and brother Nic, in a Mercedes top, were all in the garage, their eyes fixed on the timing screens.

But before the sun had set, in the twilight of the Abu Dhabi evening, Hamilton had gone into a comfortable lead. By his first stop, 10 laps in, the gap was 2.7sec. Rosberg stayed out a lap longer but it did him no good on rubber that was only getting worse.
Rosberg’s engineer Tony Ross came over the radio to explain their remedial strategy: ‘Keep the gap to him (Hamilton) manageable, and we’ll go long.’
But within minutes, the German veered off track. That was nothing compared to the problems with his car’s battery gizmos: the energy recovery system (ERS). ‘It’s failed,’ he said over the radio. That was costing him 160bhp and three seconds a lap.
Hamilton came in for new tyres as his time was dipping – Scherzinger bottom lip quivered – but he only needed to be re-shod. He came out and zoomed straight past Rosberg. Both men were totally fair and clean. Hamilton was away.
Now Rosberg had just one chance, scoring heavily enough to take the title if Hamilton were to stop. ‘Just get me into the top five or six as safely as possible,’ he said. Actually, he would need fifth mathematically to have a hope in hell.
‘How am I looking?’ he inquired, while lying seventh and slithering further back.

‘Not good at the moment,’ he was told.
‘What the hell does that mean? What do I need to do?’
‘Just drive flat out.’
It was truly the most pathetic exchange of the season.
But it was not the last. ‘Hey, guys, what’s going on?’ he asked. ‘The car switched off and now the throttle is all over the place. Get my brake pedal back now please.’
As for Hamilton, the message was brighter. ‘Please don’t turn up the car (engine). Leave it alone. It is all working perfectly.’ And once Felipe Massa came in for his second stop, Hamilton was back in the lead. Twelve laps remained, all navigated calmly, even though Massa got close.
So the glory went to Hamilton, and who can say he did not deserve it? He is an extraordinary British sportsman at something like the peak of his powers. Eleven wins to Rosberg’s five is a fair reflection of the season.

We salute a genius of the track. He can be moody. His jewellery is not to everyone’s taste. But there is no denying sheer ability when you are privileged enough to see it. He has also worked hard, roaring back to victory after the bugler has played the Last Post on several qualifying sessions, mostly notably at Silverstone when he came from nowhere to win.
But we must pay tribute to Rosberg. He has conducted himself with grace, and driven beyond most people’s expectations.
I have travelled next to him on a plane, on which he was wearing a face mask to save himself from infection and turned down yoghurt because it was not fat free. Such are some of the small sacrifices of many sacrifices he has made to make his talent go even further than nature intended.
But, as in their karting days, it was P1: Lewis Hamilton; P2: Nico Rosberg.
