Tone Damli Aaberge (born 12 April 1988 in Sogndal) is a Norwegian singer. She became famous for being a contestant in the Norwegian version of the Idol series.


She was the runner-up in the Norwegian version of Idol in 2005, following Jorun Stiansen in the final. She has released five albums, Bliss, Sweet Fever, I Know, Cocool and Looking Back. Bliss and I Know have been certified gold in Norway. She also finished third in the Norwegian version (second season) of Dancing with the Stars in 2006.

On 18 August 2012, it was announced on the official Idol website that Tone Damli will be the first of an all-new four-member jury of former Idol contestants to celebrate 10 years since the debut of Idol in Norway, along with the very first winner Kurt Nilsen.

Also, she participated in the Swedish NS for Eurovision Song Contest 2013, with Erik Segerstedt but "Hello Goodbye" reached only until the Andra Chansen.

North Vision Song Contest 1

When NRK confirmed the participation of Norway in North Vision Song Contest, searched for an artist that had an experience in music contests and found the best representative in the face of Tone Damli.
