'American Idol' contestant Casey James, who's perhaps best known for removing his shirt at Kara DioGuardi's request during his first audition, performed an simple, genuine version of 'Heaven' by Bryan Adams on acoustic guitar that drew universal praise from the judges and an inappropriate amount of cougar lust from DioGuardi.

"Seriously now, jokes aside. You are eye candy, but you're also ear candy," DioGuardi said. "Your looks may be what we first looked at, but you can play and you can sing, and you've got heart and soul."

"Seriously now, jokes aside. You are eye candy, but you're also ear candy," DioGuardi said. "Your looks may be what we first looked at, but you can play and you can sing, and you've got heart and soul."

Ellen DeGeneres joked that it was difficult to hear over the sound of DioGuardi undressing James with her eyes, but added that he "sounded great" and will likely "get votes like crazy."

Simon Cowell, while not as gaga over James' good looks as DioGuardi, nevertheless thought his performance was excellent. "You absolutely chose the right song. It came over as very honest, very sincere," he said. "This was the best performance ... I've heard from you since you've been in the competition."
