Asuka Kondoh and Vitolio Jeune of 'So You Think You Can Dance'
Asuka and Vitolio
Monkeys As Critics' Verdict: Better than their material
Boy, talk about crappy luck. First off, Asuka and Vitolio are stuck following one of the better performances of the evening. But more significantly, they get stuck with one of the hokiest, lamest dance routines imaginable. Even the costumes suck. Given the unenviable mission of aping silent movie characters (white Mickey Mouse/Al Jolson gloves included) to a lousy song, they did their best only to be reprimanded by Nigel and Mary for bringing a lack of energy and personality to a dance that was the physical equivalent of having to wear a sweater your grandmother knitted you to a school dance. That they got through this mess without grimacing, well, that was really the accomplishment. I hope they don’t get the boot for this routine, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.
