Didi Benami of 'American Idol' performs on Billboard Hot 100 Night
Singer: Didi Benami
Song: "You're No Good"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: We can now spend a while making fun of Miley Cyrus' pronunciation of "vibratto." Tee-hee. And then we can spend a while making fun of Ryan Seacrest's blunder on Didi's last name. Tee-hee. I like this version of Didi. She's going a bit slinky and flirty, playing with the on-stage bassist (an "Idol" classic) and moving with the camera. Is the vocal memorable? No. But do I find it unlikeable? No. Not at all. She looks fantastic and she's having fun and looking relaxed. And yes, I may be a bit of a smitten kitten myself.
Randy, Ellen, Kara and Simon Say: Randy loved the idea, but he didn't like the pitch. Ellen doesn't get the song choice. Kara thought Didi was playing a character. Perish the thought of a performance? Simon points out the "irony" of Didi singing "You're no good" over and over again. That would not be "irony," Simon. Sorry. That would be a sad coincidence. Then Simon compares Didi to Lacey, which is damning. Didi tries saying that she doesn't want to be pigeon-holed and that she wanted to do something different.
