American Idol: Katy Perry kissed a boy, he didn't like it

American Idol: Katy Perry kissed a boy, he didn't like it

During a round of auditions that aired earlier this week locally on Fox8, which airs the show the same day as the United States, 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. "I was a tad bit uncomfortable", said Glaze. "I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship". The "unwanted kiss" has been receiving some backlash on social media for its predatory nature, while others considered the teenager lucky for kissing the "I Kissed a Girl" singer. Perry told him to come over to the judges' table, where a hesitant Glaze said, "One on the cheek?" before kissing Perry on the cheek. "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".

And, he said, he's still saving his real first kiss for his first relationship. She convinced him to try again, but as he went for her cheek, she turned and pecked him on the lips, causing him to fall to the ground still holding his guitar while shouting, "Katy!"

Glaze then kicked off his audition with "Levels" by Nick Jonas, though it seemed his nerves got the best of him and the judges deemed him unfit for Hollywood. "No, I've never been in a relationship". She asked for another kiss, complaining that he hadn't even made the "smush sound". "They agreed with me that it didn't really count", he said.

Katy beckons the boy over to the panel before letting him plant a wet one on her cheek.


The kiss aired during the show's March 11 season premiere and garnered criticism from some viewers who called Perry's actions inappropriate. Although he didn't make it past that round, the smooch helped him get more airtime. "That's what a real first kiss is". "It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about".

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.

Representatives for ABC and Katy Perry did not respond to requests for comment.
