    It's the second one that sounds awkward to me, not the first. – J.R. May 22 '18 at 14:42
  • I agree with J.R. Idiomatically, we use the first one, not the second one. – stangdon May 22 '18 at 17:40

Idiomatic using the present tense (continuous).


There's no way I will tell you about her show.

Idiomatic using the future tense (simple).
