Playing Ariana Grande Has a Major Marilyn Monroe Moment at MTV Movie Awards

Ariana Grande performed a flirty, jazzy rendition of her hit single, "Dangerous Woman," at the MTV Movie Awards during Sunday's broadcast and the sultry songstress was giving off some serious Marilyn Monroe vibes.

Decked out in a hot pink mermaid-cut gown with a sweetheart neckline and luxuriously furry white arm-warmers, Grande's lounge-singer style was undeniably sexy in a retro Seven Year Itch kind of way.

The 22-year-old "Break Free" singer was accompanied on a grand piano by Jason Robert Brown, who wrote the music and lyrics for the Broadway play 13, in which Grande starred in 2008 -- although this seductive cover of "Dangerous Woman" is a far cry from that teenage Broadway musical.

Last month, Grande delivered another amazing performance of her hit song on Saturday Night Live, where she served as both the musical guest and host. Check out the video below to see more from her appearance on the sketch comedy series.
