We've Fallen in Love With the Singing Nun on 'The World's Best'

By Allison Cacich

Even if you haven’t caught an episode of CBS’s new reality talent competition The World’s Best, you may have heard rumors about the singing nun, who successfully advanced to the Battle Round during her appearance on the Feb. 6 episode.

Sister Cristina Scuccia, a 30-year-old from Italy, impressed the show's three judges, as well as the international panel of 50 experts, with her rendition of Lady Gaga’s "Born This Way," earning a score of 78.

Though she’s got a killer voice, what fans really want to know is how the singer transitioned from the convent to the stage. Here’s what we know about the rising star.

She’s used to coming in first.

Sister Cristina is no stranger to televised competitions. The nun won Italy’s version of The Voice in 2014, singing Alicia Keys’ "No One" for her audition.
