The first recall was held at the “Ice Q” building that presides at the top of the 3,048m (10,000 ft.) summit of Gaislachkogl in the Tyrolean Alps.

In this spectacular location, which was prominently featured in the James Bond movie ‘Spectre’, the best 126 singers had to compete for a ticket to the next recall in South Africa.

Who are the 26 talents who made it?
