The Collective’s debut single on X Factor: One Direction knock-off or their own direction?

Did somebody just clone One Direction?

Because X Factor Australia finalists The Collective sounded eerily similar to the British boy-band when they performed what could be their winners’ single, 'Surrender', on last night’s show.

"There's nothing out there in the charts like this," said X Factor judge and Collective mentor Ronan Keating. "I believe it's a smash."

Except for, say, One Direction’s hit single 'Live While We're Young'.

From the moment they sing "Move like a butterfly, butterfly", it sounds remarkably similar to the line "You drive me crazy, crazy crazy".

The boys go on to sing "I surrender" in the chorus, echoing 1D's “And live while we're young".

What do you think? Compare 'Surrender' from The Collective in the video above and 'Live While We're Young' by 1D below.
