American Idol’s Joshua Ledet vs. The Voice’s Juliet Simms: Who Sang “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” Better?

When American Idol contestant Joshua Ledet sang James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World,” he blew the judges and viewers away. But he’s not the only one to perform the pants off this soulful favorite. Just last week on The Voice, rocker Juliet Simms did her own potent rendition of the tune, prompting coach Adam Levine to call her “the one to beat.” Unfortunately, Juliet was beat last night by co-contestant Jermaine Paul.

Nonetheless, both Joshua and Juliet had some outstanding moments while singing this James Brown song. But who sang it better? Watch both performances and cast your votes below!
