The unexpected star of The Voice of Italy: Suor Cristina goes viral around the world. And millions get to hear Italian when they least expected it

The Voice, big in Australia, is a global franchise. The audience and judges in the Italian version went crazy when an unknown singer turned up in her work clothes – a nun’s habit – and rocked the stage.

Suor Cristina is a real life nun and her audition singing ‘Noone’ by Alicia Keys quickly went viral on the web – with tens of millions of views in a couple of days. She may sing in English but she is Italian-speaking through and through, as are the judges. To see her in action and the judges’ reaction during and after the song, as well as some useful background, just click here:
