On Thursday (March 10), "American Idol" returned to continue its musical battle to find the show's final champion. Narrowing things down even more, the pressure was one for everyone ... except maybe La'Porsha Renae.

The frontrunner -- she's pretty much going to win the whole show, right? -- put on her rock and roll hat this time around with a sassy rendition of "Come Together" by The Beatles.

Owning the entire stage from the moment she began to the moment she exited, La'Porsha brought a swagger to her performance the crowd has yet to see with her previous songs. Harry Connick, Jr. had nothing but praise, pointing to her connection with the nonsensical lyrics.

Vocal power aside, Renae got great reviews from all the judges. Jennifer Lopez agreed with everyone else's sentiments and pointed to La'Porsha's knack for going "full diva." Rising to the top and staying there, it's hard to imagine anyone else taking the final "American Idol" title home.

Is La'Porsha Renae this year's winner? Stay tuned as "American Idol" continues its farewell season Thursday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
