KIM Kardashian admitted she is feeling “pressure” ahead of her Saturday Night Live hosting debut.
The 40-year-old teased her upcoming appearance after viewers slammed the show for booking the star.
Kim took to her Instagram Story on Friday to share a video of a beautiful pink flower arrangement that spelled out “SNL.”
As the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star filmed the flower arrangement from various angles, she explained off camera that it was a gift from designer Jeff Leatham.
Kim said: “Thanks so much for sending me these flowers. That is so amazing and I absolutely love them.”
She then admitted her fears ahead of her SNL hosting debut, adding: “The pressure!”
The TV personality is set to host SNL on October 9, while Halsey will appear as the musical guest.
KIM’S HOSTING DEBUT
Last month, NBC announced the first set of hosts and musical guests lined up for SNL’s upcoming 47th season.
Owen Wilson is kicking things off as host with Kacey Musgraves performing on October 2, followed by Kim and Halsey’s episode.
Rami Malek and Young Thug are on the line-up for October 16, while October 23 will feature Jason Sudeikis and Brandi Carlile.
Ever since Kim was announced as one of the show’s hosts, fans haven’t kept quiet about their feelings regarding the casting choice.
DEBRA SLAMS KIM
One outspoken critic of the decision was Will & Grace star Debra Messing.
The 53-year-old shared her thoughts on Twitter, writing: “Why Kim Kardashian?”
The actress continued: “I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch.
“Am I missing something?”
Debra wasn’t the only person confused by the choice, as another Twitter user said: “Kim K, really????”
An additional fan stated: “Why do we give platforms to the Kardashians? What about her says “funny?”
“What? Halsey can’t host and sing anymore? Boo,” another wrote.
KIM’S SECRET MEETING
However, not everyone was surprised that Kim was selected as a host.
Back in August, a source told KNEWZ.COM that Kim and her mom Kris Jenner were seen having a meeting with SNL creator Lorne Michaels in Los Angeles.
The insider added: “Lorne Michael was recently spotted at the Beverly Hills Hotel deep in discussions with Kim, and her momager-manager, Kris.”
The source continued: “Lorne wants her to do the show.”
Kim certainly won’t be the first reality star to take the stage at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
The KUWTK star’s pal Paris Hilton hosted back in 2005 and Donald Trump hosted while running for president back in 2015.
More recently, fans expressed their outrage when NBC announced Elon Musk, who is good friends with Kim’s ex Kanye West, was taking on the role of host for an episode.
Kim first met Kanye, 44, began dating in 2012 and married two years later.
The TV personality filed for divorce back in February after nearly seven years of marriage.
The exes share four children together: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
