'American Idol' contestant kissed Katy Perry...and didn't like it

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

"American Idol" contestant Benjamin Glaze spoke out on Wednesday after receiving a surprise first kiss from Katy Perry during his audition on Sunday's season premiere of ABC's reboot.

"No I've never been in a relationship, I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship", Glaze said, looking decidedly sheepish. Now, several months after the audition, the singer is opening up about the encounter that left him feeling "a tad bit uncomfortable". "I wanted my first kiss to be special". "I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship", Benjamin said. "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".

While many a lad - and a lady - would be chuffed to lock lips with the singer, this particular performer wanted to save his first kiss for a relationship. "Anyone else watching Idol feel like Katy Perry pressured that poor kid into letting her kiss him on the cheek and violated him by planting one on his lips?" "Imagine if a 33 year-old male artist tricked a 19 year-old female auditioner into a kiss like Katy Perry just did with that teenage guy". He responded that he had never been in a relationship and never had his first kiss.

Glaze said he talked at length with his friends back home about the audition and the kiss.

But his girlfriend Sierra, who appeared next to him in their interview from Los Angeles, tells "GMA" she is okay with his Katy connection.

Ms. Perry motioned for him to come over to the judges' table and stuck her face toward him.

Although the kiss went down in October, fans hit the Twitterverse with mixed reviews when the show aired this week, with some calling the kiss "sexual harassment" or "weird", and others saying he was one lucky man. Although he didn't make it past that round, the smooch helped him get more airtime. "They agreed with me that it didn't really count", he said.

He later told the New York Times that he felt "uncomfortable" about the situation, even going as far to say that if Perry had asked before it happened then he would have turned her down.
