How do you solve a problem like Cristina?
On many reality singing shows, the judges have been known to tell soulful contestants that they “took them to church”: but one contestant on the Italian version of The Voice really did just that. Sister Cristina Scuccia, a nun from Milan, auditioned for the show on Wednesday night and her rendition of Alicia Keys’ “No One” got the coveted four chair turn.
The whole premise of The Voice is that judges have their backs facing contestants so they’re only judging them based on their vocal abilities. But something tells us that 25-year-old Sister Cristina would’ve been picked regardless. This is definitely Pope Francis’ Italy.
There are so many wonderful and ridiculous parts of this story, but probably the best nugget is that she chose to be on the team of a former Italian rapper who goes by J-Ax. Sister, WHAT?
