Peter Evrard (born 19 October 1974) is the winner of the first season of Idool 2003, the Belgian version of Pop Idol.

Evrard defied the traditional rules of the Idols series by singing rock music instead of the expected pop. Regardless, he managed to win the series, and in 2003 he placed third overall in the World Idol contest. Evrard lives and works in Beerse, Belgium. He is married and has 2 sons. One of his aspirations in life is that his sons grow up to be openminded people. He is the only one of the original 11 World Idols to lose their mother early in life.

In 2005, Peter began recording music again with his band Toner on the CD Radio Honolulu. The song "Let Me Take You Through the Night" was used for the soundtrack of Flikken, a popular Belgian television series.

In 2007, he recorded, together with Sofie Van Moll, the new theme tune for the Belgian soap opera Thuis.
