Resident rocker Juliet Simms gave the performance of the night on ‘The Voice‘ with a cover of James Brown’s soul classic ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.’

Juliet broke down talking about her desire to claim ‘The Voice’ prize for herself, as she has been toiling in the industry since she was 16. She followed her father into the business and talked of her desire to have something that is truly her own.

The team Cee Lo member was sultry and sexy from the start, matching a space age dress with smoky vocals.  Backed by a string section, Juliet had her signature growl in full effect. She really believed what she was singing as her punk rock attitude seemed to emanate from her being. After dramatically nailing a huge power note at the end, the crowd erupted in sustained cheers.

Adam Levine told her that she was the one to beat and the performance was, ”something special.” Christina Aguilera talked of her own thrill she got from singing the same song at the Grammys and praised Juliet for singing from the heart. Coach Cee Lo simply stated that Juliet “murdered the vocal.”  If we took bets, Juliet Simms would be the sure favorite.
