After 12 rounds, the World champ and his recent challenger are tied for 1st with 10, 1.5 points ahead of the next group. Karjakin won their individual encounter with black (https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/world-blitz-championship-2016/5/1/1), although he made heavy work of it after getting Q for R quite early on.

And tied again after 21 rounds, 16.5 apiece!

Two points ahead of the field. Looks like Karjakin lifted his game to become challenger, and it has carried through to blitz. Carlsen lost to Ivanchuk again (https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/world-blitz-championship-2016/16/1/1).
