AGT’s Sacred Riana Returns! And Not Just On Britain’s Got Talent.
Viewers who watched Season 13 of AGT will probably remember The Sacred Riana. The strange act mixed horror with magic, and regularly scared the judges. Riana was eliminated in the quarterfinals, but now she’s returning to television.
Not only is The Sacred Riana heading overseas to scare the Brits, but she’ll also be starring in her own horror series. Read on to find out more about her creepy comeback.
Who Is The Sacred Riana?
The Sacred Riana’s full name is Marie Antoinette Riana Graharani. She’s from Indonesia, and previously won the second season of Asia’s Got Talent in 2017. Last year, she auditioned for America’s Got Talent.
Riana rarely spoke during her performances, and frequently carried a creepy doll. She put a horror-movie twist on both close-up and larger-scale magic tricks. Her final performance on AGT involved several Riana look-alikes and ended with her crawling up a wall.
Earlier this year, Riana starred in a movie showing her origin story. It was called The Sacred Riana: Beginning, and was released in Indonesia. The trailer alone is enough to give you nightmares.
The Sacred Riana Joins ‘BGT: The Champions’
Much like AGT: The Champions, Britain’s version of the all-stars show will feature acts from around the world. That includes The Sacred Riana. She competed in the new series, which filmed earlier this year and debuts on ITV this Saturday, August 31.
The competition will run for six weeks, with the finals taking place at Wembley Arena in London. The show was pre-taped, and the winner was recently leaked online after they showed off their trophy following the announcement. Don’t worry, we won’t spoil it for you.
AGT’s Sacred Riana Gets Her Own TV Series
Britain’s Got Talent might not be the only place you’ll be able to see Riana. According to Deadline, Fremantle (which produces AGT) is developing a horror anthology series starring Riana, following a partnership with Indonesian company Wahana Kreator Nusantara.
The project will reportedly be called The Sacred Riana: Bedtime Stories, with stories inspired by urban legends and folklore. The series will be in English. We can’t wait to get scared by Riana all over again.
