See Why This Sicialian Nun Brought a Rapper to Tears on 'The Voice Italy'

This is why The Voice is kind of amazing. The judges never know who an awesome voice is coming out of until they turn their seats around...even in Italy. And when the judges on the Italian version of the show heard a woman's soulful rendition of Alicia Keys' "No One," they turned around to find a Sicilian nun (wearing a nun's veil, habit and even those plain black shoes.)

And this nun-25-year-old Sister Cristina Scuccia-was jamming. As her sisters danced to her performance backstage, the judges all turned around with shocked looks on their faces that this voice was coming out of a nun and that she was completely rocking the stage.

She even brought judge/rapper J-Ax to tears when she talked about her voice being a gift. "You know, in music mix works very well...Sweet and sour, hugs and hits...Me and you are invincible, you know why? We, together, are the Devil and the Holy Water! You have to choose me," he said after she performed.

Surprisingly, that worked, and he ran on stage and swept her off the ground when she picked him...Maybe this will inspire a Sister Act 3?
