Hi lekimkhanh0109! 'the basic questions' means the questions with simple answers like 'How old are you?' and 'Where are you from?'. If you 'get something out of the way' you do it so that's it's done and you can move on to doing other things. It could be something you don't want to do. In this case, the interviewer says 'Let's get the basic questions out of the way first' so that they can quickly finish with those questions and start talking about more interesting questions. Does that make sense? Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I can't choose just one singer or band, because I love many singers and bands!
I'm a big fan of Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer.
I also like bands like Nirvana and Green Day.
I don't have just one favourite song.
