Music Monday – Didi Benami of American Idol singing “Terrified”

Didi Benami may have been voted out of the American Idol season 9 but I still believe that she's one of the most talented singers in the competition and she should have stayed longer. She was actually one of my early favorites as she has a beautiful voice.

Didi who worked as a waitress auditioned for American Idol inspired by her college friend who lost her life in a car accident in 2005. They attended Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.

I have to agree, though that she chose a poor song “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted” which was not really great. It sounded over-dramatic and it earned her a seat at the bottom three with the least amount of votes along with Tim and Katie.

She gave a better performance in her exit song “Rhiannon (Will You Ever Win)” by Fleetwood Mac but not enough to convince the judges to use the "save" option.
Well, it was the end of the road for Didi Benami but I do hope that we will be seeing her perform once again.

Her rendition of Kara DioGuardi’s song “Terrified” is I think her best performance in the season. Watch the video below:

NO!!!!!!!!!!! i beg to disagree with u lee..hehehe...she is not as oas u think she is. Her voice isn't that good. trust me. and most especially she is soooooooooooo dramatic. i actually like her a lot at first in fact she is one of my fave but somehow just every time she just sooooooooo nerve cracking. and it just sucks...krystal and shioban and mike i think are the best by far...

Well, in my opinion, this season's batch of Idol's are not as good when compared to David Cook's batch. But my GF is still addicted to AI so I have to watch it too, hehehe :-D I was also curious at first how Ellen is doing as a judge.
