Carly Rose Sonenclar appeared to cement her frontrunner status on Wednesday’s “X Factor,” where she took on one of the most beloved songs of all time.

Playing the piano, the 13-year-old sang John Lennon’s “Imagine” and proved that she has more than just a stellar voice in her arsenal.

“What I love is that you’ve taken your artistic credibility up one notch by playing the piano,” L.A. Reid told her, also commending the difficult song choice.

“You always go in and find that [high] note, don’t you?” he added.

Demi Lovato, who earlier in the episode worried about Sonenclar becoming predictable, declared, “The only predictable thing about that performance was that it was going to be amazing.”

“[You] sounded really beautiful,” she continued. “Loved that you took a risk.”

And while Simon Cowell thought the arrangement was “overcomplicated,” Sonenclar’s mentor Britney Spears disagreed.

“It is time for you to go beyond this stage and compete with the biggest stars in the world,” she told her contestant.
