Katy Perry robs 'American Idol' contestant of 'special' first kiss

ABCBenjamin Glaze gives judge Katy Perry a kiss on

During a round of auditions that aired earlier this week locally on Fox8, which airs the show the same day as the U.S., the three judges were introduced to 19-year-old Benjamin Glaze, an Oklahoma native who sang an original tune with hopes of getting the ever-coveted golden ticket.

19-year-old American Idol contestant Benjamin Glaze recently appeared on the newly revived reality competition show and had quite the memorable experience.

When judge Luke asked hopeful Benjamin if he'd ever kissed a girl and liked it, the youngster replied: "I've never been in a relationship. I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship", Benjamin said. "Come here right now".

Keen to impress, Glaze went in for a second kiss on the cheek before Katy cheekily turned her head, surprising him with a kiss on the lips and raising her arms in victory. "I wanted to save it for my first relationship". I wanted it to be special, ' he said.

'I was a tad bit uncomfortable. "I know a lot of guys would be like, 'Heck yeah!' But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately".

"Have you kissed a girl and liked it?" asked Mr. Bryan, making a coy reference to Ms. Perry's first hit single, "I Kissed A Girl".

"'Better than saying Kanye" - Oprah on Trump's VP 'offer'
In recent weeks, Trump has repeatedly attacked the actress and talk show maven. She continued, "Do not give you energy to that which you don't believe in.

Even though it aired earlier this week, the audition itself took place last October and this has given Mr. Blaze, who is now 20, some time to consider the event with perspective.

Perry then called him to the judges table and asked for two kisses on the cheek.

The kiss did result in his getting more screen time, which has helped draw attention to his music.

Holmes, who admitted he had a crush on Perry, says most people never think they'll actually get to meet their celebrity crush. In the moment, Glaze was aghast, and Perry was victorious. He added that he does not feel like he was sexually harassed by Katy and is grateful for her tweet about him, and that he's since talked to his friends about whether the moment even counts as his first real kiss.

"It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about", he said.
