(Reporter: "What kind of advice do you have for Alicia?")
"You know what, it would almost be arrogant if she didn't ask me personally. You know what I'm saying? I mean she has to do her thing. You know Alicia has to be Alicia and that's all I can say. I can't give her anything else. The only thing I can say is that the people are there to have a good time and not to worry about the fans because the fans are there to enjoy themselves. I don't think nobody comes to the Grammys looking to troll. You know you may have a small section but the majority of people are there to have a good time. So just enjoy the moment."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Ella Mai, recording artist:
"Thank you. It's incredible. I wasn't expecting it at all and I think I still -- I don't think it's hit me yet. I think tomorrow when they actually say the category and say my name I'm going to be like, 'Wait hold on.' I'm nominated for song of the year. I feel like it still is really like a pinch-me moment. But I'm just so, so grateful honestly."
"I mean I think we're just going to try to go to bed reasonable-ish but still like celebrate. Because it's a big night. It's a really big night. So I think we're going to try to be semi-responsible but a little bit -- I'd like to get at least tipsy."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Linda Perry, producer/songwriter:
"Women are winning right now. I mean I think that people are -- what happens I think a lot of times is people don't acknowledge what's happening in the moment. They're always keep pushing things too like, 'Oh when they win a trophy ...' We don't need to win trophies like we're already winning by you know being dominant in the categories right now. First time a woman is hosting, first time, if I win I'll be the first woman that wins producer of the year. Haven't been -- there hasn't been a woman in the category in 15 years. So these things are very important to acknowledge."
