MILAN - A nun who became an Internet star for her unadorned pop song performances in full habit triumphed at Italy's version of musical competition "The Voice" early Friday, singing and dancing to a song from the 1980s movie "Flashdance."
Sister Cristina Scuccia has fascinated a global audience from her first surprise appearance in a blind audition in March to her final number, "Flashdance ... What a Feeling," that clinched her victory among the final four competitors during the finale.
She took the title, and the Universal record contract, with 62 percent of the votes.
Scuccia, 25, reserved her final thanks ''for the one up there," and insisted on reciting the Lord's Prayer after winning, inviting the studio audience and a skeptical panel of judges to join her.
