Marine delays war duty for US Pop Idol
http://www.sina.com.cn 2003/02/12 09:51  金羊网-新快报

  A US marine's deployment to the Gulf has been delayed so he can continue competing on the American version of Pop Idol.

  Lance Corporal Josh Gracin, 21, was scheduled to travel to Kuwait with his unit this week ahead of the expected war against Iraq.

  But his mother says that when he was given the chance to appear on American Idol "higher authorities" intervened, the New York Post reports on Jan. 27.

  Brenda Gracin, of Westland, Michigan, said: "American Idol had to work with Washington to get Josh out of the deployment."

  He is due to sing on Jan. 29 after Simon Cowell heralded his performance of Frank Sinatra classic All or Nothing at All when his audition tape was screened last week.

  Mrs Gracin said her son was not shirking his duty, and he will follow his unit out to the Gulf once his stint on the show is over.

  美国海军一名一等兵约瑟-格雷辛本来这个星期要出发到海湾地区作攻伊准备,可是当他就要出发时,一个上美国偶像的机会却来了,于是,整个舰队决定为了他延期出发。

  据约瑟的妈妈称,《美国偶像》已跟约瑟的上级商量好,把他从军中拉出来,因为他要在1月29日上台演唱Frank Sinatra的经典金曲。她说自己的儿子并不是逃避兵役,他表演完后将立即归队赴海湾准备随时开战。
