The Flash: Duets: The Musical Numbers Ranked
This episode of the Flash, with it's characters from The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow trapped in a dream type reality where they must play out a musical theater type plot...so incredible! I honestly wished for another hour of the story, mostly to hear the cast singing. I've read that the cast had many talented musical members, but, oh, man, their voices.
The biggest surprise was Jeremy Jordan who plays Winn on Supergirl, and his great soulful voice belting out Put A Little Love In Your Heart with a large troupe of singers and dancers while he played piano.
Every single person in the cast looked as if they were having the time of their life. So much fun!
I loved every single number and wanted more. Here is how I rate them, though it is so hard to choose.
5. Superfriends A sweet number combining talking, singing and tap dance with Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist.
4. Put A Little Love In Your Heart A great song and dance number featuring Carlos Valdes, John Barrowman, Jeremy Jordan, and Darren Criss. They just pulled out all the stops on this song, great singing, spectacular dance.
3. Moon River Melissa Benoist's Supergirl finds herself in a stunning gown singing this classic to a nightclub audience. Beautifully done. That moment when she recognizes Barry at the back of the room!
2. Running Home To You Barry solos this song at episode's end, singing his hearts desire to his beloved Iris, and asking her once more, but with proper feeling, to marry him. (Sniff). Grant Gustin has such a tremendous voice and the lyrics are perfect for the Flash to sing to the love of his life.
1. More I Cannot Wish You Jesse L. Martin, John Barrowman and Victor Garber sing the beautiful harmonies of this song to dream world Iris and Mon-el. Each actor's voice was spectacular and it fit the world and story so very well.
