Despite a few hiccups, the Neway K Awards 2013 ended smoothly on the night of 8 November 2013 (Friday) at the Icon, Kuala Lumpur. The award ceremony which started off with the red carpet session at 7PM followed by the show at 8PM sees more than 20 local singers attending the event.

Date: 8 November 2013
Venue:The Icon Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
Local rock band dayDream was one of the acts to perform that night. However, when they were supposed to present at 10 minutes medley there was a technical glitch and they performed a few other tracks. The issue still persist after their inpromoptu performances and the main vocalist of dayDream got annoyed where he threw a guitar and pushed away the mic stand leaving the stage with everyone being shocked.The awards ceremony went on where a few other awards were given out and when the previous issue was solved, dayDream went back up on stage to perform. Though the performance went well the second time and the crowd gave a positive cheer after it ended, the damage cannot be undone.
Nicholas Teo 张栋樑 without an album release in the past 2 years attended the awards specially for the fans and though the organizing party told him that he has a single track for a drama series, he insisted that he was present because his main intention to be around was because of the fans. On the other hand, he also provided the entertainment needed in the Neway K Awards which was really dull overall. When awarded the Gold Award for the most favorite Male Singer, he pulled a fan closely and held her hand on his chest seriously stating that he has a “body” as well, echoing to the reactions of the previous Silver & Bronze winner in the same award – Eric 林健辉 and Henley 许亮宇.
Personally, I felt that there were quite a number of issues with the Neway K Awards. The lighting issues and venue was quite a turn off, the mechanics behind how the awards winners were doubtful as well. The flow of the even as well as the way on how the whole show was presented was not professional, to some people, it might be a laughing stock. If the awards were to be held the second time, the committee should sit down and discuss thoroughly on ways to improve the awards.
