Melissa McCarthy will be joining the Five-Timers Club when she hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend, and the comic genius is feeling oh so pretty in this awesome promo.

In the trailer, McCarthy pays tribute to her love of song and dance with a lighthearted, graceful spin through the halls of studio 8H while lip syncing to the iconic West Side Story number "I Feel Pretty."

Meanwhile, McCarthy also gives fans an inside look at how she transforms into White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer -- apparently it involves a makeup chair and a team of 1940s barbers -- before continuing her musical romp in full "Spicey" get-up.

McCarthy debuted her acclaimed Spicer impression in February, when she made a surprise appearance during an episode hosted by Kristen Stewart. She's since reprised the role twice, most recently in April when she played the press secretary making a public address decked out as the Easter Bunny.
