While 'Gangham Style' remains as the most-watched video on the website, it took 18 days to reach over 10million hits, meaning Cristina has achieved record-breaking success.

Even Alicia Keys expressed her approval of Cristina's cover, tweeting: "Now THAT'S what beautiful, pure energy looks like! Sing it, sister Cristina! ;)".

Judges on the show were also dazzled by Cristina's singing, with one asking if she was a real nun.

The Ursuline sister replied: "Very real indeed. I have a gift and I've come to give it to you."
