On behalf of UFA SHOW & FACTUAL GmbH, our art department set the stage for the auditions at different locations on the Garden Route and in Cape Town.

In these beautiful sceneries, the top 26 talents were fighting for their entry into the live shows.

The first stop was Nature’s Valley Beach in the Tsitsikamma National Park – one of the most beautiful places on the Garden Route – where the talents had to perform in small groups.

Watch the first recall episode of ‘Deutschland sucht den Superstar’, Season 17, on Tuesday, February 18, at 8:15 p.m. on RTL.
