by at . Comments

... after last night's performance, it isn't hard to do.

David Archuleta caused girls to scream and Paula Abdul to cry with his rendition of the classic John Lennon song "Imagine" during the night that showcased this season's top 10 American Idol men.

The Heavy Favorite

Check out the comments it elicited from all three judges:

Randy Jackson said: "That's one of the best vocals I've ever heard on this show... That was brilliant."
Paula Abdul said: "That was . . . one of the most moving performances I've ever heard.. You're destined for super stardom."
Simon Cowell said: "Very, very risky to do a John Lennon song, particularly that one, but it worked. You're the one to beat."

Do you agree? How do you rate Archuleta's performance?
