When it comes to this weekend's Grammys, music legend Roberta Flack would like a little face time with this generation's crop of pop stars.

Flack, who is being honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at the Jan. 26 ceremony, was asked by the NY Post who she'd most like to meet. Her list is loaded with chart-topping hit-makers.

"I hope to have a chance to meet Lizzo, Kygo, Meghan Trainor, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and tell them how much I love their music," she raved, adding that she's "always happy to see" (show host) Alicia Keys. "It’s so great to have a seat in the room to experience it firsthand."

The singer remains the only solo artist to win the Grammy for Record of the Year two years in a row: in 1973 for “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," and then in 1974 with “Killing Me Softly with His Song."

Surviving a stroke in 2016, Flack says that she's strong, feeling good and happy.

"After a couple bumps in the road, my health is excellent. After a recent, regular checkup, I passed with flying colors," she told the Post. "I have some age-appropriate abilities that do not keep me from much and I am enjoying my life with vibrancy, love and a lot of joy. That feels good to me, you know? I go to shows when I can. Every week I work with my musical director and my vocal coach to rehearse, vocalize and sing. I am able to enjoy [music] with all the passion I ever had for it."
