In Hollywood

Didi Benami was given her nickname by her sister. Her real name is Vered Benami.

This American Idol contestant hails from Los Angeles. She auditioned for season nine in that same city and received a golden ticket to Hollywood after singing "Hey Jude" by The Beatles.

In a sad moment, Benami broke down in front of the judges because she dedicated her performance to a friend that passed away four years earlier. She considers herself a country/pop singer and plays the guitar.
