In 2012, Trent Bell, Julian De Vizio, Zach Russell, Jayden Sierra and Will Singe successfully auditioned as soloists for the fourth season of The X Factor and progressed to the super bootcamp stage. After failing to make it into the top six of the Under-25 Boys category during super bootcamp, the judges Ronan Keating, Guy Sebastian, Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Melanie Brown decided to put them together to form a boy band for the home visits stage, thus qualifying for the Groups category. During home visits, they travelled to London, England and sang Rihanna's "We Found Love", their first song as a group, in front of their mentor Keating and guest mentors One Direction. Keating later selected them, along with Fourtunate and What About Tonight, for the live finals--a series of ten weekly live shows in which contestants are progressively eliminated by public vote.

During the official launch for The X Factor at the Museum for Contemporary Art in Sydney on 13 September 2012, Keating announced that the group would be called The Collective. He stated, "We put it up on the web and had a lot of different names and the fans themselves picked it." For the Judges' Choice-themed first live show, The Collective performed Jessie J's "Domino" and received positive comments from the judges, with Keating calling it "the best performance I've ever seen on X Factor anywhere in the world". Bassingthwaighte described their performance as "phenomenal", while Sebastian said it was "unbelievable". For the Party All Night-themed second live show, they performed Kenny Loggins' "Footloose" and again received praise from the judges, with Brown saying that Keating had a good chance of winning The X Factor with The Collective. ...show less
