One of The Herd’s largest events is CU Idol. As a similar event to the ever-popular, “American Idol”, CU students audition to become one of ten contestants in the final show. The show takes place on February 21 in the Glenn Miller Ballroom. The show consists of three rounds with two intermissions. After the second round, five contestants are eliminated. The top three winners are chosen after the third round. The winners receive prize money, half of which must be donated to a student group of his or her choice. The first place winner receives $1000, the second place winner receives $500 and the third place winner receives $250.
