Didi Benami, 'American Idol'

You know her as: A funky-voiced acoustic singer Why we like her: Sure, Didi Benami had her off weeks ("What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" was particularly rough), but we thought her "Terrified," "Play With Fire" and "Rhiannon" were right up there with the best performances of the season. She was easily better than several of the men who outlasted her on the show. Where else you've seen her: Nowhere, yet. But she's hoping to put out an album next year, so who knows? -- Andrea Reiher, Zap2itFOX
