Flash and Supergirl Stars Reveal Favorite Moments From Musical Episode
Melissa Benoist, Grant Gustin and Candice Patton tell CBR their favorite moments from tonight's Flash/Supergirl musical crossover.
For “The Flash” star Grant Gustin, he was excited about both of his numbers in the episode, but had a special place in his heart for “Runnin’ Home to You,” written by the duo of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul — who just last month won an Academy Award for their song “City of Stars,” from “La La Land.”
“I felt very lucky to sing that song by Pasek and Paul, who are exploding right now in the scene of music writing,” Gustin told CBR on the red carpet before Saturday’s PaleyFest event in Hollywood, paying tribute to “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” “I knew them a little bit from college — they came to the master class where I went, Elon University. Me and Benj, especially, stayed close-ish since then. It was really cool and special to get to sing that, and they clearly had done their homework on not only the show, but Barry and Iris’ relationship, and just what the whole show has been. They knew where they were coming from, and they wrote a near-perfect song for that moment. I felt really lucky to sing it.”
