Singing nun Cristina's Girls Just Want to Have Fun sees off The Voice rival Palumba

Sicilian nun Sister Cristina Scuccia, who was a global hit last month with her blind audition performance of Alicia Keys' No One on the Italian version of The Voice - has done it again.

The 25-year-old took on fellow contestant Luna Palumbo, 23, in a sing-off of  Cyndi Lauper's classic Girls Just Want to Have Fun. The two singers were both selected by rapper J-Ax during blind auditions.

Scuccia scored yet another win from the judges after another passionate show of her vocal talent with her nun pals cheering her on from the sidelines.

During the feedback, judge Noemi shares how she appreciates how God has been brought into the competition through Sister Cristina's presence.

"I am a believer and I think that having brought God in here, it's extraordinary, because nowadays we do miss the spirituality," the Italian singer-songwriter says.

During the performance, Sister Cristina pointed heavenward during the line beginning with "Daddy dear," perhaps a reference to a more heavenly Father?

This nun doesn't just wanna have fun, however-- she told the judges after her first audition that "“I came here because I have a gift and I want to share that gift."
