The Flash and Supergirl are 'Super Friends' in first clip from musical crossover

After dropping a huge bunch of pics last week, the CW has released the first clip from its upcoming Flash/Supergirl musical crossover extravaganza, "Duets."

The episode -- which actually kicks off with Supergirl's "Star-Crossed" tonight -- will feature the Fastest Man Alive singing and dancing alongside the Girl of Steel when Barry (Grant Gustin) and Kara (Melissa Benoist) get whammied by the villainous Music Meister (Darren Criss).

The clip unveiled by the CW features the dynamic duet duo -- who are both former Glee alums, by the way -- breaking into song (which was written by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-creator Rachel Bloom) about being "Super Friends," with Barry even doing little tap dance. The tune also features talk of going back in time in case it doesn't work the first time ... let's just say Barry has learned his lesson following the events of "Flashpoint."

Also included is a video interview with Melissa Benoist about making the musical and a cool poster. Check them out below and enjoy all the musical goodness!

Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end.

Supergirl airs at 8PM on Mondays and The Flash airs at 8PM on Tuesdays on The CW.
