Didi Benami and Andrew Garcia interview each other (video)

During a break from rehearsals for the upcoming American Idol Live summer tour (Get Tickets Now - Order Here!) beginning July 1, and after running through their group number - a cover of Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You” more than a dozen times - the Top 10 Idols paired up to grill each other. While some Idols did their interviews completely unscripted, others had the help of index cards. All offered plenty of laughs!

American Idol’s Didi Benami Admits She'd Date Host Date Ryan Seacrest!

American Idol Didi Benami


EXCLUSIVE! We Called It — ‘American Idol’ Singer Didi Benami Admits ‘I’d Date Ryan Seacrest’!

Wonder what Ryan’s rumored new GF, Julianne Hough, has to say about this?

Uh-oh! Looks like Julianne Hough has some competition for Ryan Seacrest’s affections! We called it during this season of American Idol, and it appears that season 10 contestant Didi Benami WAS as into Ryan as we thought!

“Ryan is really cute,” the 23-year-old singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively during the American Idol summer tour kickoff in Burbank, Calif. June 17. “I mean, after my contract is over, I would totally date him.”

She continued, “I’d go on a date and see…I think Ryan is really sweet. During the show, nothing was going on. He’s just a real nice guy. I appreciated it.”

Here, Didi’s pal, season 10 runner-up Crystal Bowersox, interjected, “He wasn’t as touchy-feely with me as he was with you. I gotta say that.”

“He knows that I am sensitive and he’s always trying to comfort me, I think,” Didi responded, adding, “He’s really a great person. Great energy, everything. Great smile, cute…I don’t have a crush on him or anything, I’m just saying if he asked me out, I’d probably say yes! In six months when our contracts are over, we’ll see.”

We smell trouble for former Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne, 21, whom the Idol host just took on a romantic stroll on the beach June 13. You’ve got serious competition, lady!
