I have a new favorite :)

Didi Benami


Tonight I actually grabbed my phone and voted for her on American Idol. My FAVORITE performance yet is her rendition of Kara DioGuardi's "Terrified" (which is on Katharine Mcphee's album Unbroken)

I am addicted to this song... and sadly, Didi's version is my absolute favorite (and she only sings half of it on American Idol) Check it out:

(You know Kara - the judge on American Idol - wrote the song right? Along with SO many other hits. Check out Kara singing this song HERSELF. You'd never know it but Kara has a pretty damn good voice too... so as it turns out, she does know what she's talking about on American Idol. lol)

This is totally irrelevant but have you ever noticed how much Lea Michele (from Glee) and Kara DioGuardi resemble one another??

Lea Michele (via)

Or maybe it's just me? What do you think?

I really liked Didi when she sang Katharine's song but now don't really like her much. Kara & Lea do kinda look alike but Lea is way more prettier IMO.

DiDi has been one of my fav's since her audition. I adore her voice. Whenever she sings I just want to curl up on my couch with a warm, snuggly blanket and... well... snuggle, lol. But I mean that in a good way. Like a comforting, lulling, unique and sweet kind of voice. I really hope she makes it far. I voted for her several times ;)

1. SO FUNNY . . . I was looking at someone else's blog today, and she posted a pic of Lea Michele (who I'd never heard of/seen), and I commented: "That girl looks so much like Kara DioGuardi! Hilarious. So no, it's not just you! :)

2. I think DiDi has a great voice . . . but her audition tapes, especially at the beginning, are a little weird, huh? She cries a lot and she seems kind of insecure and she's pretty obsessed with her bff who died. But you're right, she did a great job with Terrified.

3. I love Andrew Garcia--what a sweetie! :)
