KIM Kardashian prepared for her big SNL debut by practicing her lines and filming scenes.
The KUWTK star, 40, shared behind-the-scenes photos of herself reading a script and wearing a dramatic outfit while shooting a skit.
Kim looked deep in concentration as she read the script backstage and recited her lines.
In another photo, she rocked a chainmail sheath over a black skintight catsuit teamed with long black gloves.
Wearing a pair of black sunglasses, the mother-of-four perched on a chair and spoke into the camera in front of her.
Kim proudly shared the montage on Instagram on Thursday and captioned it: "2 more sleeps."
Earlier this week, she made headlines by introducing herself as "Kim Kardashian West" during an SNL teaser – despite her ongoing divorce from Kanye.
The video begins with Kim, who stands in between Halsey, 27, and SNL star Cecily Strong, stating: “Hi. I’m Kim Kardashian West and I’m hosting SNL this week with musical guest Halsey.”
Cecily, 37, adds: “This crazy thought just occurred to me in this exact moment right now. Should we start our own girl group?”
Halsey quickly says “absolutely not,” while Kim adds: “We already said no when you pitched that backstage.”
Many fans may be surprised by the SKIMS founder’s choice to introduce herself as Kim Kardashian West, as she filed for divorce from Kanye, 44, back in February.
The former couple – who were married for nearly seven years – share four kids: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
KIM'S 'NOT HOLDING BACK'
A source exclusively told The Sun that Kim will showcase her comedic chops on the legendary NBC series and plans to “not hold anything back” during her first turn as host.
However, Kim has apparently banned jokes about sister Khloe's photoshop accusations & cheating drama with Tristan Thompson.
According to an insider close to Kim, the SNL writers are “impressed” with how much she is “willing to poke fun of herself.”
“They weren't sure how controlling she'd be when it came to the jokes about her personal life. But when it comes to her personally, she told them not to hold back.
“She has heard everything about herself already so she's not sensitive to any of that,” the source said.
BAN ON KANYE MATERIAL?
The informant also alleged Kim “did give restrictions” when it came to writing about her ex-husband.
“There is a planned Kanye sketch pending approval from him,” they spilled.
The source added that the KUWTK star is working with the rapper to approve of the sketches before they get her official stamp of approval.
“Kim is running a few things by him first before she gives it the green light.
“That's where she's being the most careful because if he hates it, they could cut the whole skit,” the insider said.
