Bonnie Tyler kept Eurovision entry a secret from family


Singer Bonnie Tyler refused to tell her family about her plans to compete in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest because she was terrified they would post the news online.

The singer discovered last Christmas she was to represent Britain in the popular contest, and struggled to keep the news to herself until it was officially announced earlier this month.

Tyler feared her younger relatives would release the news on social networking sites such as Facebook, so she chose to keep quiet for months.

"It was hell trying to keep this a secret because I have known since Christmas," she told U.K. TV show The One Show. "I didn't slip. Because of Facebook, with children and everything now, I have to keep really tight. I was terrified it would come out."

Tyler will perform "Believe in Me," written for her by Desmond Child, at the competition in Malmo, Sweden, in May.

she's a two hit wonder(in the distant past) has been, only in the UK would someone like that be considered successful
