She won last year's "Asia's Got Talent." 

And The Sacred Riana, the young magician from Indonesia known for her ghost-like appearance and creepy illusions, is at it again -- this time, leaving an American audience terrified. 

She was one of the acts who auditioned during the pilot episode of the new season of "America's Got Talent," which aired in the US this Tuesday and is set to air in Manila on Thursday. 

She pulled off a similar trick to the one she used to scare Anggun when she made her "Asia's Got Talent" debut, making a ghastly figure mysteriously appear in a photo she took of judge Mel B.

The former Spice Girls member described the act as "magical," while comedian Howie Mandel called it "one of the most original, creepy, wonderful magic" he saw. 

Simon Cowell, however, did not share the opinion of his co-judges, telling The Sacred Riana to "watch more Disney movies." 

She did get three yeses (one no from Cowell), which means that she passed the audition round and earned a shot in the next round.
