With only hours until she takes the stage as the night's performer on Saturday Night Live, Nicki Minaj is prepping for the gig in the way only she knows how: with revealing selfies and some Instavids.

The rapper, who will drop The Pinkprint on Dec. 15, took to Instagram in the lead-up to her appearance on the show, where she will be joined by her "Bed of Lies" collaborator, Skylar Grey. The Dec. 6 episode will be hosted by James Franco. Minaj appears in the actor's upcoming film, The Interview.
