Roni Daloomi (Hebrew: רוני דלומי‎, born September 15, 1991) is an Israeli singer. She was born in Omer, Israel. She won the final of Kokhav Nolad 7 contest on August 30, 2009, despite getting some harsh reviews from the judges all throughout the season.[1]

Daloomi started singing when she was 12 years old, after 7 years of dancing at the Bat-Dor Dance Company in Be'er Sheva. She was crowned by Southern Israel media the promising star of the South. As she recalls, when she had told her family that she wanted to become a singer they felt bad for her because they did not know she could even hold a tune.[2]

She entered competitions in Israel and abroad, getting first place every time, and participated in "Shir Nolad", a children's song festival, in 2006.

Daloomi is currently working on her debut single with Kokhav Nolad 6's winner Israel Bar-On and will star in a sitcom partially based on Hanna Montana. The series which will be called "The Roni Daloomi Show" is produced by Kokhav Nolad producers and Daloomi will play herself.[3]

Kokhav Nolad 7

Daloomi auditioned for Kokhav Nolad 7 in Be'er Sheva, after the production looked her out and asked her to audition. At her first filmed audition she had told the judges she wasn't sure she could handle the pressure of being on TV and that her mother doesn't approve of her participating at all. The show's director called her the "flower girl from the Negev" and she quickly stood out with her silk voice, curls, her big blue eyes and mostly her smile. Quickly, though, her confidence was shattered as the judges placed her at the bottom of their ranking table every week. A judge who she had a problematic relationship with was Gal Uchovsky[4] who ranked her last almost every week and all but constantly gave her harsh reviews.[5] Despite their ranking, the judges shockingly watched as Daloomi was saved by the audience every time and made it to the final in Eilat where she won the competition with 61% of the votes (after being ranked last by the judges once again). Her victory came as a surprise to many as she had no media coverage as her competitors and being the judges' obvious least favorite contestant. Daloomi is the youngest winner of the show to date, being only 17 years old at the time, and the first female to win since first season's winner Ninet Tayeb.

In one of the late stages of the competition Daloomi was nicknamed "Tifrakhat Ha'Daloomi" ("The Inflorescence of The Daloomi") by judge Dana international[6], as a way to describe her improvement during the competition. This nickname is commonly used by the media as a reference to Daloomi herself, or to curls like hers.[7]
