It finally happened: the 25-year-old Italian nun who became a viral sensation with her interpretation of Alicia Keys’s “No One” back in March just won The Voice of Italy. Last night, Sister Cristina Scuccia sang “Beautiful That Way,” got 62.3 percent of the vote, nabbed a record deal with Universal, and then said the Lord’s Prayer onstage, because she is a budding superstar, but also, she is a nun.

If you missed that initial Alicia Keys performance, you should probably take this opportunity to fix that:

And here’s last night’s triumph. It’s no “No One,” but Sister can sing, and there are Cirque Du Soliel-y people mime-dancing in the background. Basically, A+ everyone.
