David Archuleta reprises his "American Idol" performance of "Imagine," which seems odd -- definitely a great moment, but why do the exact same thing two years later?

Show us how you've grown; the magic of the first performance is gone, because we're not thrilled and surprised at how good it is. Archie is one of my favorite all-time contestants on "American Idol," would've been great to create a new memory tonight.

If he were on the show this year, he'd be such a favorite to win. Lee Dewyze's tone with Siobhan Magnus' strong vocals with Aaron Kelly's likeability.

He gives a great shy smile of appreciation afterwards, like always just listening to him talk you have to smile; he's as breathless as always.
