Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer in a promo for Saturday Night Live.

The White House press secretary is feeling oh so charming in honor of McCarthy's "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig.

Melissa McCarthy is getting a major makeover for her big Saturday Night Live hosting gig. 

In a promo for this weekend's episode, McCarthy lip syncs to West Side Story's "I Feel Pretty" as she dances throughout the SNL set to the hair and makeup team who transforms her into the lovely and beautiful ... White House press secretary Sean Spicer. 

But the new look only enhances the performance, with McCarthy, now in a suit and wig, continues to twirl all the way to the stage. 

McCarthy, likely reprising her role as an aggressive Spicer taking press questions, hosts the May 13 episode of SNL, with Dwayne Johnson following on May 20. 

SNL also created a highlight reel video in honor of McCarthy's return to the show, featuring some of her more impressive falls, dance moves and other stunts throughout the years.
