Christina Aguilera's new hair color matches her fiery personality.

The formerly blond singer unveiled her makeover ahead of Hillary Clinton's "She's With Us" fundraiser at The Greek in L.A. Monday. Striking a glam pose, Aguilera gave fans a sneak peek at her new 'do via Instagram. Shah Karegar dyed Aguilera's hair a rich auburn hue before Chris Appleton gave it Jessica Rabbit waves. Etienne Ortega did her makeup, opting for a red lip and cat-eye liner. Simone Harouche styled Aguilera in a tuxedo jacket and bedazzled leggings.

In addition to singing "Fighter," Aguilera also performed her hit single "Ain't No Other Man" (on the 10th anniversary of its release, no less!). She wanted to lend her voice the Clinton campaign ahead of Tuesday's California primary. John Legend, Stevie Wonder and Ricky Martin also performed at the event. In fact, Clinton trotted out a number of stars, including Sophia Bush, Cher, Magic Johnson, Eva Longoria and Shonda Rhimes. Several speakers used their time on stage to publicly bash Donald Trump, Clinton's likely opponent in November's general election. "I'm a ninth-generation American," Longoria said. "But I'm sure Trump will tell you otherwise."

Ahead of the event, several outlets reported Clinton has earned enough delegates to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination. When Legend mentioned the news midway through his set, he reminded attendees that she doesn't have it in the bag. "I don't care what the AP says about who won the nomination," the R&B singer said. "We need everybody to vote tomorrow."

When Cher took the stage, she joked, "As you might have heard, last month I turned 100 years old...OK, I turned 70 but it's the same s--t. I've been alive through 11 presidents, and when I was young, I didn't even know if was possible for a women to be president of the United States." When Clinton ran for Senate years ago, Cher attended an event geared towards women. "I was so interested in what she had to say. She was so different. I've known her for a long time now, and I have to say that no matter which way the political winds have blown at any moment, her moral compass has always pointed towards grace, justice for genders, and justice for sexual orientation, which is big for me. All of those things are important to me."

Cher has often trashed Trump on Twitter, and she took aim at him yet again before introducing Aguilera's performance. "When I see Trump talking, I just want to blow my brains out," the diva said. "Well, maybe not my brains, but I'm just like, 'What are you talking about? Jesus!' I know that Hillary fights for equality for all people and we are no good unless all of us are equal."

At night's end, Clinton also spoke out against Trump when she appeared onstage. "Enough with the fear. Enough with the anger. Enough with the bigotry. Enough with the bullying," she told her supporters. "Everyone knows Donald Trump is not qualified to be president of the United States. Let's guarantee we have a Democrat following Barack Obama enter the White House."

Clinton's rival, Bernie Sanders, also hosted a concert in San Francisco Monday. It featured a Dave Matthews Band performance and appearances by Shailene Woodley and Danny Glover. His campaign criticized the media for calling the nomination for Clinton ahead of the primaries.
