Why not you're?

There is probably a simple answer to this, but I can't see it.

In a class on 'compliments' a student wrote 'How beautiful you're tonight'

I corrected it to 'How beautiful you are tonight', but I can't think why he's wrong and it's driving me mad. Also, I promised I'd get back to him.

Please help
