"I was a tad bit uncomfortable", he said, explaining that he had serious intentions for the romantic gesture.

Benjamin Glaze wants his first kiss back.

Hopeful singer Benjamin Glaze walked away empty handed after auditioning in front of judges Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan on the revamped reality show, but Perry made a decision to send him off with a kiss on the lips.

Glaze spoke to the New York Times about the eventful audition-which incidentally didn't get him past the first round-and admitted that in hindsight, he would have refused if she had asked to kiss him flat-out. 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.

The viral moment occurred shortly after Glaze introduced himself to the judges panel.

Do YOU think Katy crossed the line by kissing the contestant?

Ben, who did not move on to the next round during his initial audition, went on, "I am not complaining about the kiss I am very honored and thankful to be apart of American Idol the main objective for the show is to find stars and new music artist". Luke Bryan asked him, "Have you kissed a girl and liked it?" in a reference to Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" single. 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. [My friends] agreed with me that it didnt really count, Glaze noted.

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

Benjamin went on to tell the Times that he's at least grateful that the unscripted kiss got him a little more screen time. The cashier from Oklahoma will tell stories of his first kiss with a celebrity for years to come.
