    All four coaches were visibly shocked when they turned around and saw Sister Cristina for the first time wearing a black habit and silver cross. Coach Raffaella Carr, an Italian singer, asked Cristina if she was actually a nun. "Yes," she replied, per Catholic News Agency, "I am truly, truly a sister."

    "I came here because I have a gift, and I want to share that gift," she continued. "I am here to evangelize."

    Cristina, a member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family, chose J-Ax, an Italian rapper, "because I told myself that if they turned around, I would choose the first one."

    He seemed pleased, joking, "If I had found you at Mass I would always be in church. You and me are like the devil and holy water."

    Sister Cristina is now advancing to the battle rounds on Team J-Ax. When asked what the Vatican would think of her performance, she quipped, "I hope that Pope Francis will call me now."
