Didi Benami, who I don't think should still be on "American Idol," plays the guitar on "Rhiannon," in a red dress. It's another oddly flat performance; she has a nice tone to her voice and is very sincere.

But I don't know, this isn't grabbing me by my throat. Seems nervous and distant, almost unhappy.

Randy says better than last week, no "wow!" moment, but not bad. Weird, judges seem to want to keep her around. Ellen likes that she got back up her after getting "torn apart" last week. Uh, okay. Kara says "one of my favorite moments of the show so far this season," loved the song choice, made it yours.

Simon agrees with Kara, says it's best of the night, calls the whole performance the "wow!" moment. Wait, really?!
