ABCBenjamin Glaze gives judge Katy Perry a kiss on"American Idol

After "American Idol" hopeful Benjamin Glaze told judge Katy Perry that he had never been kissed in the show's premiere episode, she surprised him by planting one on his lips before his audition.

At first, Glaze said he would only kiss her on the cheek, and did, but the "Teenage Dream" singer wasn't impressed, criticising Glaze for not making the "smush sound".

Fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan cheered and high-fived Perry, who afterwards offered an innocent apology for giving the contestant the "kiss of death".

"Have you kissed a girl and liked it?".

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.

"It was lip contact vs. a romantic situation with someone you care about", he said. "I can't kiss a girl if I'm not in a relationship". Bryan got out his phone to take pictures, while Glaze, expressing disbelief, walked over to Perry. He said he had been reflecting on the stolen kiss since he filmed the audition in October. 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, visibly shocked and smiling, fell to the floor.

In the shocking exchange between the Perry and the contestant, Glaze yelled in shock, "Katy!"

"Yeah I got him", she answered, smiling. "Well, that's a first". "I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship", Glaze answered, as Perry's eyes widened and she exclaimed, "Really?"

However, Glaze couldn't deny that the exposure from the show benefited his music.

In the current climate of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, the ill-gotten kiss sparked a lot of dissent from "Idol" audiences.

In a recent report on the Inquisitr, Katy Perry was reportedly caught flirting with one of the contestants of American Idol, Trevor Holmes.

For her part, Perry tweeted a GIF of Minnie Mouse pulling Mickey Mouse in for a kiss.
