Union J is a british boyband (made up of band members Josh, Jaymi, JJ, and George) that was on the British X-Factor in 2012. Josh, Jaymi, JJ, and George did not all audition together. Josh, Jaymi, and JJ came in as a band called Triple J and George auditioned solo. After a few rounds, the producers of the show had the brilliant idea to put them together as a new band. Union J finished in fourth place in the singing competition. In 2013, they put out their first album called “Union J”.
