The singing show, similar to the U.S. version, pairs up talented, undiscovered vocal performers with already famous coaches who pick them in a blind audition and mentor them throughout the season of the show. Voting is done primarily by public opinion.

Sister Cristina was coached by J-Ax, a 41-year-old atheist rapper. The two were dubbed “the devil and the holy water.”

According to the New York Times, in an interview in the Milan daily, J-Ax said he hopes Sister Cristina will make a record.

“It’s a great opportunity,” he said. “But the earnings, all the earnings have to be earmarked to build a hospital or an orphanage in Brazil,” where Sister Cristina worked with poor children. “No one can earn a penny from it,” he said.

“My dream is to recite the Our Father together,” the 25-year-old nun said in her victory speech, and she asked the audience and judges to hold hands for the prayer, according to CNS News.

Her final performance was big on flash. Watch the now-famous nun perform the song “What a Feeling” from the 1980 movie “Flashdance” via CNS News video:
