X Factor Around the World is the 24th anniversary television special of RCTI, joining four continents' biggest versions of The X Factor reality singing competition—X Factor Indonesia (Asia), The X Factor USA (America), The X Factor UK (Europe) and The X Factor Australia (Australia). The show was originally aired on 24 August 2013 in Indonesia and featured performances by six winners and runners-up: Melanie Amaro, Samantha Jade, The Collective, Jahmene Douglas, Fatin Shidqia, Novita Dewi.
The judging panel consisted of Paula Abdul, Anggun, Daniel Bedingfield, Ahmad Dhani and Louis Walsh. The TV special was produced by Fabian Dharmawan for RCTI and Glenn Sims for Fremantle Media, who were also the executive producers of X Factor Indonesia. The show was purely a music showcase and no winner was announced. The special episode was a smash hit completely destroying the competition from rival broadcaster SCTV who were also playing their own birthday celebrations on the same evening. For a programme broadcast 95% in English language this was quite a major achievement and paved the way for the pan-regional Asia's Got Talent, produced exclusively by Fremantle Media.
