Keep your eyes peeled for a black dude named Antoine at tonight's So You Think You Can Sync competition. The 6-foot-5 banker cut up the floor last year when he mouthed the words to a Whitney Houston tune to take home the $50 cash prize. "All of a sudden, the DJ puts on his music, and he had every word down. I said, 'You must sing like this in front of the mirror,' because he was shaking and gyrating and throwing his hands up like Houston," says Gerry Keating, the show's host. "The audience was in stitches."To enter, show up at the gay-friendly Twist nightclub a half hour before the lip-syncing starts, a tape of your song of choice in hand. After each performance, a panel of three judges will rank the competitor on originality and precision. "You have to look like you're singing the song, from the breaths that the singers take on the recordings to pronouncing the words correctly," says Keating. And song choice could break a tie in the standings. "We've had everything from diva music by Streisand and Madonna to rock and roll," says Keating. "You don't have to do any Christmas tunes, but it would be nice, since it goes along with the season." The syncing starts at 11 tonight at Twist, 11633 Clifton Boulevard. Admission is free. Call 216-221-2333.
