[edit] American Idol

Benami auditioned for American Idol in Los Angeles, California, where she has been living for the past four years. At her audition she sang "Hey Jude" by The Beatles. The judges all loved her performance, including guest judge Avril Lavigne. Benami became a front-runner in the competition following her well-praised performance of judge Kara DioGuardi's song "Terrified" in Hollywood Week, and has since progressed to the Top 10, guaranteeing herself a place on the summer American Idol tour. On March 31, 2010, Benami was eliminated from the competition, finishing 10th place. Despite an encore of "Rhiannon" for the judges' save, the judges chose not to save her, though, Simon Cowell stated it was one million times better than her performance the night before.
