Katy Perry Kissed 'American Idol' Contestant - And He Didn't Like It

Katy Perry Ruined ‘American Idol’ Hopeful’s First Kiss “I Wanted It To Be Special”

Katy Perry Ruined ‘American Idol’ Hopeful’s First Kiss “I Wanted It To Be Special”

The cashier from Oklahoma will tell stories of his first kiss with a celebrity for years to come.

And he didn't like it.

Benjamin Glaze, a contestant on the season premiere of American Idol, is opening up about his on-screen first kiss, saying it made him "a tad bit uncomfortable". He added that he wished Katy had been more explicit in asking for consent (a must in any romantic situation!), so he could've had a better opportunity to refuse the kiss. He plants one on her cheek, but Perry seemed disappointed there wasn't an audible "smoosh-sound", so Glaze agrees to start over, and just as he goes in for it, Perry turns to face him and Glaze's lips meet her own.

Benjamin Glazes audition for American Idol didnt quite go as planned.

The guy immediately recoiled as Katy's fellow judges pointed and laughed at the whole thing.

Benjamin was shocked, like everyone else, when the 33-year-old singer asked him to come over and kissed him on the lips, according to the New York Times.

"Would I have done it if she said, 'Would you kiss me?' No, I would have said no", Glaze told the Times.

"I have never been in a relationship and I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship", Glaze responded. "I wanted it to be special". "We all have celebrity crushes but it was really amusing because when they asked me to run in I was just beelining towards him and I had no idea I cut Katy off", she says, describing the moment Holmes found out he was through to the next stage of the competition.

After the Perry peck, she and judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie cheered as Glaze, clearly shocked, staggered back and said, "Katy!"

"I know a lot of guys would be like, 'Heck yeah!'", he said.

Construction worker Trevor Holmes wowed judge Perry with his swoon-worthy audition earlier this week, leading the "I Kissed A Girl" singer to declare him "hot". Pity it was all captured on tape for posterity and lols.

Still, he's now got a pretty great story.
