Team Cee Lo's Juliet Simms may have memorably belted "It's a Man's, Man's, Man's World" on Season 2 of "The Voice," but it turned out that that song wasn't so prophetic after all. She was the last girl standing that season, and despite placing second (she probably would have won, if the rule changes of the following season — no team quotas, the iTunes bonus — had applied), she is still known as the series' ultimate rock 'n' roll queen. There's been no one on the show, or any singing show, like her since.

But since then, the fierce and fabulous onetime Automatic Loveletter frontwoman has continued to forge her path to rock stardom, appearing on "The Voice" Seasons 3 and 4, releasing the raucous single "Wild Child," signing with Republic Records, and rejoining forces with her former mentor Cee Lo, who is now co-managing her career. This rock goddess is spreading her black-feathered wings, and there's nowhere to go but up.

Juliet recently brought her signature sandpaper growl to Yahoo! Music, where she performed acoustic versions of songs from her forthcoming album and sat down to talk in-depth about her journey pre- and post-"Voice." And, of course, she rocked. Check out the videos here for proof!

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
