Tonight is finally the night for Kim Kardashian, as she will be hosting “Saturday Night Live,” for the first time ever. She is also the first Kardashian to do so. Ahead of this hosting, she has reportedly been feeling nervous but has definitely been putting the work in.
A few days ago, SNL also put out a promo clip, of Kardashian with musical guest, Halsey, as well as Cecily Strong. At that moment, Strong joked about the three needing to form a girl group, to which Kardashian and Halsey hilariously passed upon.
Kim Reportedly Spent 20 Hours A Day Rehearing For ‘SNL’
Kardashian has been serious about making sure that this SNL hosting role goes perfectly as planned. This is the second episode of the show’s 47th season. According to production sources close to TMZ, she’s been spending 20-hour rehearsal days, since getting to NYC. She initially got into town, on October 4. Kardashian reportedly started the rehearsals between 5-6 AM and didn’t finish until 3 AM, the next day.
She’s also supposedly been perfectly fine with this schedule and has been putting in the work needed, to make this hosting a success, for this iconic show. Comedy legends such as Dave Chappelle, Michelle Wolf, Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Schumer, and James Corden have also been said to have been helping Kardashian prepare.
Kanye West Also Assisted In Helping Kardashian Get Ready
Kanye West, who Kardashian currently has an ongoing divorce, has supposedly been helping her prepare for the SNL hosting, as well. Sources close to Page Six stated that Ye “is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show.”
Kanye and Kim’s divorce paperwork was initially filed in mid-February, but lately, there’s been speculation that the two may reconcile. This is after Kim was seen at multiple “Donda” album listening events, and was recently spotted having dinner with Ye, at a Nobu restaurant, in Malibu. The two haven’t publicly spoken on the reconciliation rumors yet.
Kanye was also spotted having dinner with Michael Cohen in NYC last night, per Page Six. This was at an Upper East Side coffee shop, as Ye looked comfortable, spending time with Donald Trump’s former attorney. Kanye had previously supported Trump in 2018, and Cohen is currently under house arrest after being in prison for tax fraud and lying to Congress. This night out with Kanye was likely approved, by the Bureau of Prisons.

Kanye Was Almost The Musical Guest For Kim’s ‘SNL’ Hosting
According to HollywoodLife, Kanye was actually almost coincidentally going to be the musical host for Kim’s SNL hosting tonight. This was a possibility, but the progress of actually making it official didn’t receive any significant progress.
“Weeks and weeks ago when they were getting Kim to do the show, they threw around the possibility of him to be the musical guest, those discussions didn’t make it very far.”
