Didi Benami is off American Idol

After a highly criticized performance Tuesday night, Didi Denami was placed in the bottom three and then the bottom two. The votes from the viewers were compiled, resulting in Benami's elimination from becoming the next American Idol. To add insult to injury, the judges chose not to use their 'save' option to keep her in the competition.

On the bright side, Benami will be touring this summer with the Top Ten contestants.
