American Idol contestant kissed by Katy Perry said it made him 'uncomfortable'

ABCBenjamin Glaze gives judge Katy Perry a kiss on

"I wanted to save it for my first relationship".

A 19-year-old "American Idol" contestant's first kiss with Katy Perry was far from a teenage dream.

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".

When Perry heard him say he had never kissed a girl before, she said, "Come here". As he moved toward her cheek again, Ms. Perry swung her face toward him and kissed him quickly on the lips. "You didn't!" Before starting his song, he asked for water, noting, "It's just that I, I kinda wasn't expecting that". The comeback includes a new line-up of judges - Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry.

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

The kiss aired during the show's March 11 season premiere and garnered criticism from some viewers who called Perry's actions inappropriate.




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.

In a recent report on the Inquisitr, Katy Perry was reportedly caught flirting with one of the contestants of American Idol, Trevor Holmes. I wanted it to be special, ' he said.

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

The first kiss of an aw-shucks teenager from Oklahoma, delivered by a superstar singer, might have made for a sweet pop-culture moment in a previous era.

Telling Katy what he does for a living, he explained: "I'm a cashier at an electronic store but I love it because sometimes there's cute girls and they're not going anywhere without saying hi". "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". "It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about".
