On April 13, 2010, ten Washburn University students got to show off their singing abilities and try to become the new WU Idol.

There were different styles of music, including a song in a different language, duet singing, talents with musical instruments, and even an original piece that a student wrote.

WU Idol also featured comedian Pete Lee, who has been touring the country for the last 14 years and has been on Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing.

In the end Rita Hrencher took third place, Jennifer Berroth and David Wingerson took second place, and Brail King took first place to become the new WU Idol of 2010.
