Poll: Does Didi Benami remind you of Brooke White?


Share

The Didi Benami looks like Brooke White observation is all over the forum sites and blogs and we thought we’ll delve in what really makes people think they are similar… Even Didi herself mentioned Brooke White in her Q&A, so there must be something there!

  1. The obvious: They are both blondes!
  2. They both moved to LA to try their luck in the music industry! Brooke is from Mesa, Arizona and Didi from Knoxville, Tennessee
  3. They both took “normal” jobs while in LA. Didi as a waitress and Brooke as a nanny.
  4. They auditioned for American Idol 2 seasons apart. Brooke was 24 then and Didi 23.
  5. They both play the guitar although Brooke can also play the piano very well!
  6. Both have that singer/songwriter, indie folk/pop vibe going for them.
  7. They both have distinct voices. Just the right amount of thin-edged raspiness that works for them and their personality!
  8. They perform a song with such conviction, honesty and vulnerability– you believe it.
  9. Because they are such sensitive individuals: they express their emotions of happiness and sadness by letting out a tear or two.
  10. On Idol, they both get worried and anxious (who doesn’t?!) performing that sometimes it shows: Brooke said on her exit interview: “It’s probably not a secret that I struggled with my own confidence…” Brooke also is the first in Idol’s history to have stopped the band, and re-started a song from the beginning because she forgot the lyrics (“You Must Love Me”, Mentor: Andrew Llyod Webber). As for Didi, she is more honest than most contestants admit to fighting their nerves on stage. She asked mentor, Miley Cyrus if she ever gets nervous when performing and was relieved to hear that yes, Miley does get nervous too!
  11. If you think of any more, just leave a comment! :-)



Beyond these resemblance, we hope people will see them individually in terms of their talent and looks. One isn’t better than the other nor is one prettier than the other.

They are artists in their own rights. There is no “competition” between the two, we want to embrace the two of them and celebrate their similarities not pit them against each other. Both these individuals though akin in some areas are special and beautiful in their own unique style.

We hope Brooke White fans likes Didi Benami and will vote for her because we know there are tons of Didi Benami fans who likes Brooke White. We support Brooke’s music and bought her album, ‘High Hopes & Heartbreak’ and the iTunes live sessions. So there! :-)

On Didi’s updated Q&A on American Idol, one of the questions were:

Of the past 8 seasons, who’s been your favorite Idol contestant thus far?

“I didn’t watch the 8 seasons but I liked Brooke White after everyone told me I reminded them of her. I checked her out and watched her play “Let It Be” and cried.”

  1. [...] We made an article here a few weeks back to show their similarities. This photo however of the two of them together, says it all. Thanks for sharing this on your facebook, Didi! [...]

  2. [...] I was excited to meet Brooke. I wanted to meet her all season, because I found out the night that I ended my run on ‘Idol,’ the night I got booted was the same night that she had a gig at the Hotel Cafe. I went out singing ‘Rhiannon’ and, apparently, ‘Rhiannon’ was her encore performance. So I thought that was kind of ironic and hilarious. [Laughs] Somebody told me that after and I was like, “Oh! That’s really hilarious,” because that was, like, great minds think alike … It was really cool to meet her. I was looking forward to meeting her all season, because people were like, “Oh my gosh, you remind me of Brooke!” There’s differences, there’s definitely differences. It was just funny how at the beginning of the season everybody was like, “Oh my gosh! The reincarnation!” I was like, “No, I’m totally different.” [Laughs] We’re really different, personality-wise. We’re really different, but kind of the same. [POLL: Does Didi Benami remind you of Brooke White?] [...]
