Kanye West may be this weekend’s musical guest on Saturday Night Live, but if need be, host Melissa McCarthy is more than ready to fill in for him.

McCarthy took a break from SNL rehearsal to get a manicure — in nail polish colors like “Saturday Night” and “Candy Whore” — and record some promos with Vanessa Bayer. When Bayer asks what her favorite West song is, McCarthy immediately names “Butterscotch Man,” from “his third or 15th album.”

“Butterscotch man, tater tot, yam,” she raps. “Put it in my ham (ham), butterscotch man.” 

Bayer isn’t familiar with that particular track, but watch the promos above to hear Jay Pharoah perform “Butterscotch Man” as Kanye himself.

Saturday will mark McCarthy’s fourth time hosting the show and West’s sixth appearance as musical guest. The episode airs at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. 

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Michaels.
