The singing nun whose initial audition wowed the judges on Italy's version of "The Voice" was crowned champion of the competitive singing show this week after scoring an impressive 62.3 percent of the public vote.

Sister Cristina Scuccia clinched the top prize early Friday with five songs, including a choreographed rendition of the 1980s hit "Flashdance — What a Feeling," The Associated Press reported.

The 25-year-old Scuccia recited the Lord's Prayer after winning and invited the studio audience and a skeptical panel of judges to join her, saying "I want Jesus to enter here."

Scuccia became an Internet sensation from her first appearance in a blind audition on the show in March singing an Alicia Keys number. She chose bad-boy rapper J-Ax as her coach, who described the team as "the devil and holy water."

Here are some of Scuccia's most memorable performances, including her initial audition of Alicia Keys' "No One" and one of her final songs, "Flashdance — What a Feeling."
