Albin & Mattias Deliver "Rik" Chemistry for Melodifestivalen



Albin & Mattias have paved a career path for themselves through their collaborative efforts of Albin's lyrical compositions and Mattias' musical productions. With their Melodifestivalen entry "Rik" ("Rich"), listeners can enjoy the bright energetic charm of the melodic hook, which is made all the more convincing by their unmatched chemistry showcased in the live performance. There's also some excellent use of moving lights, making it all-in-all a worthwhile experience. The chemistry shared between these two is perhaps the best we've ever seen in Melodifestivalen, and they admit that it was "love at first sight".

Watch our exclusive interview with Albin and Mattias below, as they discuss the meaning of "Rik" (it's not about money), their bond, creative process, and so much more!

SUPERGIRL S1E12 - "BIZARRO" REVIEW

                                               

The twelfth episode of “Supergirl” is called “Bizarro”. If you know anything about Superman, that name should ring familiar. The episode starts off three months ago. Maxwell Lord is with his mysterious patient, the one we’ve been wondering about for some time now. It looks like he’s in the final stages of whatever it is that he’s doing and we come to see that it’s creating life. In this case, a life that looks eerily similar to Supergirl.

Cat Grant seems to be in a good mood. I can only guess it has something to do with her son coming back in her life. She even gets Kara a latte. While in a powwow trying to figure out this “rogue Supergirl” issue, Kara comes up with a suggesting saying it might not even be Supergirl. This catches Cat’s attention more than anything anyone else is saying.

So things are really awkward between James, Winn, and Kara once the other two learn that she’s going on a date with Adam. Maxwell Lord is brainwashing this Fake Supergirl to kill Kara. Adam and Kara are cute together. Like, I like Kara and James (and James and Lucy), but I really like the added layer he brings. He doesn’t know she’s Supergirl (like Winn and James). All he knows is what he sees and that’s Kara. As soon as they were getting close, an accident forces Kara to leave.

She’s soon confronted with her doppelganger. They duke it out, with the people in the train car almost dying in the process. Kara is convinced that it’s a clone. Alex suggest using Kryptonite to try and weaken the Fake Supergirl. The next day, Kara is confronted by both Adam and Cat. Adam still wants to try again with Kara and Cat has named Fake Supergirl, Bizarro.

Winn learns that Maxwell Lord has taken seven different comatose girls to perfect Bizarro. When asked why she didn’t kill Supergirl by Maxwell Lord, Bizarro responses that Supergirl is good and helps people. Alex confronts Lord and he all but admits to what he’s done. She doesn’t know that he knows she and Kara are sisters, but he threatens her (and those she loves) nonetheless. Back at the DEO they try and come up with a plan to take down Bizarro using Kryptonite. Kara is hesitant, wanting to go after Lord instead. Alex mentions to Kara that Lord insinuated that he knew Supergirl and she were sisters, but both seemed convinced that there was no way he could know.

Alex and Kara continue to have the strongest relationship on the show and the scene where Alex urges Kara to still try and have a life outside of being Supergirl all but proves it. Winn and James are having a drink, commiserating on both losing out to Kara. It’s actually a pretty good scene. We know why Winn is upset, but James is tricky. He’s with Lucy and for a while seemed happy to be back with her. But there’s still those lingering feelings that he might have for Kara. Winn, learning to open up with his emotions, questions why James hasn’t told Kara how he feels. In typical gentleman style, James claims he wants Kara to be happy and that he’s in a relationship himself, but Winn isn’t convinced. I like seeing the two of them getting together outside of Kara being around.

Adam and Kara are on another date and she opens up to him about her family as well as not feeling normal. The scene is shot like a CW show, but that’s okay because it works. Anyway, they finally kiss and I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m rooting for them, although I have a feeling it’s not going to last. While they’re kissing, Bizarro kidnaps Kara thinking (and knowing…) that she’s Supergirl. At first, Kara plays dumb, but when Bizarro uses her eye lighting thing, Kara has no choice but to defend herself.

The two are fighting, using all of their arsenal. The DEO show up, pelting Bizarro with Kryptonite to weaken her. Instead of weakening her, the Kryptonite does just the opposite and strengthens her. Bizarro flies away, but Kara and Alex now knows that Lord knows who she is. Kara wants to take out Maxwell Lord. In the meantime, she and Adam break up before they even get started and I have to say, I’m a tad disappointed. We just got to know Adam and if that’s the last we see of him (I doubt it since he’s so tied to Cat), I’ll be gutted. It’s one of those classic superhero tropes of the hero not being able to be happy.

Alex bursts into Lord’s place and arrests him, while Bizarro kidnaps James. They take Lord to the DEO. I don’t know if that’s a good idea. He’s a smart guy, after all. Bizarro kidnapped James because Kara loves him. James, in an effort to get into Bizarro’s good graces, tells her why he loves Supergirl. However, it was something of a ruse, just so he could call Supergirl. The two fight until Alex gets the shot to weaken her. The DEO take her back and put her back into a coma, as she was before Lord got to her.

Speaking of which, he’s in a cell and goading Kara, mentioning her adoptive mother. But both sisters leave him be for the time being. Back at the CEO it’s clear that whatever good mood Cat was in has disappeared since Adam left. The relationship between Cat and Kara looks to be back at square one. I think Cat was really warming up to Kara and was disappointed that she ended things with Adam (this all could have been avoided if she knew the truth).


The episode ends with Kara flying into her apartment and finding a strange substance on her table. There’s some sort of creature hanging on the wall and we don’t know the outcome until next week.

SUPERGIRL S1E11 - "STRANGE VISITOR FROM ANOTHER PLANET" REVIEW

                                               


The eleventh episode of Supergirl is titled, “Strange Visitor from Another Planet”. Kara is flying over the city when she sees a forest fire. She’s still dealing with the fallout from Wynn kissing her. Things are, needless to say, awkward between them. In the meantime, Miranda Crane, an anti-alien senator, is in town, making a big splash with a rally.

At Catgo, Lucy, James, and Kara are all adjusting to their new situation. James, desperate to get back in the field, convinces Cat to let him speak to Miranda Crane. While walking back to her office, she notices a stranger. She recognizes him instantly as her son, the one she gave up custody for ages ago. I like seeing Cat a little off balance, as she clearly wasn’t expecting to see him and obviously didn’t write the letter he’s referring to, wanting to reach out.

This puts Cat in a weird situation, and she lashes out at Kara who really shouldn’t have meddled, even if she meant well. After a pep talk from Kara, who mentions her own family situation, Cat calms down and allows Kara to make a dinner reservation with Adam.

While speaking at the anti-alien rally, an alien interrupts Miranda Crane’s speech. After cornering the alien, Henshaw has flashbacks. This was the alien that killed his people. Kara rushes to the scene, but she’s too late; the alien has fled. The DEO has Miranda Crane at their HQ and she is none too pleased. She sounds worse than Maxwell Lord and is none too grateful at being saved. Henshaw finally opens up about the alien and refers to it as a White Martian. We learn about Henshaw’s past, his J’onn Jonnz past where he goes into detail about what happened. He asks Kara to try and take care of the White Martian because he doesn’t want to give up his identity as Henshaw.

Cat is at her dinner with Adam and things are a tad awkward. She spends a lot of time talking about herself. In the end, it’s enough to force him to leave disappointed. James and Kara are trying to sift through the pictures he took at the rally earlier in the day to see if they can find out anything else about the White Martian. They do find out that Miranda Crane’s eyes were glowing, similar to the White Martian, and sense it can shape-shift like Henshaw, it’s obvious that the Crane at the DEO isn’t the real Crane.

Alex and Henshaw both figure out that Crane is the White Martian and a fight at the DEO ensues. Kara arrives just in time, as once again, Henshaw is unable to take on the White Martian and had another flashback. He eventually tells Alex the whole sad, story of what happened to his people. I really like the relationship Alex and Henshaw have and I’m so glad that he is willing to open up to her and Kara.

Cat is emotional over how things ended with Adam and Kara takes it upon herself to try and fix it. So she tracks him down and talks to him, saying all the things she had told Cat to say in the first place. Adam agrees to talk to Cat again as long as she tags along. Things are a little testy at first, but after Kara gets them both to open up, the dinner goes a lot smoother.

Henshaw is hellbent on killing the White Martian, by any means necessary. That goes against everything he has fought for. Using his ability to track, he finds a location for where the White Martian and Senator might be. While he thinks he’s hunting the White Martian, he finds the Senator. Alex finds the White Martian. Henshaw/J’onn wants to die; he’s tired of being the last of his kind and is ready to give up to the White Martian.

Together with Kara, Henshaw takes on the White Martian. After finally getting the upper-hand, he wants to kill it, but Kara tries to talk him out of it. He does the right thing, but the White Martian vows revenge. In a more important scene, Henshaw thinks of Kara and Alex as daughters, much like the ones he lost long ago. I didn’t know I needed this until I needed it. 

The real Crane decides to soften her position after her own encounter with an alien, as well as Supergirl saving her life and that of countless others. Adam is into Kara. Cat knows this. He eventually asks her out on a date and she agrees. I like where this is going. 

Anyway, the episode ends with Alex and Kara bonding. It’s cut short with footage of Supergirl saving a falling truck. The only problem is Kara is still at home with Alex. We’re left wondering who this impostor is. Me thinks it’s whatever Maxwell Lord has been working on.



Supergirl airs Mondays at 8pm Eastern Standard Time on CBS.
