When was One Direction formed?

They were brought back from the group of hopefuls that were sent home and advised to work ‘harder’ to make it to the live shows.
Simon, who became the band’s mentor, said: “Guys, this is a lifeline. You have got to work 10, 12, 14 hours a day, every single day and take this opportunity.
“You’ve got a real shot here guys,” and he wasn’t lying at all!

They sang 'Torn’ by Natalie Imbruglia, and the rest was history!
