"But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately".

Glaze kissed her on the cheek at first, but Perry pulled a swift one on him and kissed him on the lips.

While he failed to make it to Hollywood in the audition, Glaze says the public attention he's received from the kiss has helped publicise his music and he's appreciative of the extra airtime. Glaze, shocked, exclaimed "Katy!" as she threw her arms in the air victoriously.

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

Benjamin went on to tell the Times that he's at least grateful that the unscripted kiss got him a little more screen time.

On a repeat attempt, the poor lad fell to the floor in shock when Katy turned quickly and smacked a kiss right on his lips. She beckoned him over to the judges' table for a kiss on the cheek, but at the last moment, pecked him on the lips instead.

Ereck Flowers , on the other hand, ranked 54th among offensive tackles after earning the best grade of his three-year career. It's a steep price, but that's the cost of doing business in free agency, and there should be no buyer's remorse here.

"I wanted to save it for my first relationship". Luke Bryan asked him, "Have you kissed a girl and liked it?" in a reference to Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" single.

He said his friends told him not to worry about Perry's kiss. It was a memorable TV moment, however Benjamin isn't all that happy about it!

The contestant was stunned when the singer gave him his very first kiss, according to reports.

"So in that way", he said, "I'm glad she did it because it's a great opportunity to get my music out". The cashier from Oklahoma will tell stories of his first kiss with a celebrity for years to come.

"The way certain articles are worded is not done by me and my true intentions are not accurately represented in every article you read about the situation", wrote the suddenly Internet-famous Oklahoman.

Pop superstar Katy Perry is one of the judges on this season of American Idol, and while many have found her to be entertaining, others have taken to social media to slam her behaviour towards male contestants.
