Melissa McCarthy feels pretty, oh so pretty as she gears up to host this week’s live coast-to-coast episode of “Saturday Night Live.”

And leaving no room for doubt, a new promo for the show has her transforming into her famed Sean Spicer character.

Seeing as the promo is set to the famed “West Side Story” ditty, audiences may be able to safely brace themselves for some musical touches during the broadcast — as the first two live broadcasts with Jimmy Fallon and Chris Pine hosting, respectively, launched with song-and-dance numbers.

Watch the promo here:

The last we saw McCarthy return to the role of White House Press Secretary Spicer was for an Easter-themed skit in which her Spicer apologized and told the story of Passover.

McCarthy’s Spicer took the podium at the White House dressed as the Easter Bunny for the annual Easter Egg Roll, and took the opportunity to apologize for Spicer’s real-life comments comparing Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to Adolf Hitler.

“Hey kids, Happy Easter!” McCarthy’s Spicer shouted as she threw off the Easter Bunny head.

Watch “SNL” live coast-to-coast at 8:30p PT/ 11:30p ET.
