Glaze, who auditioned with Nick Jonas' "Levels", introduced himself as an electronics store cashier who likes his job because it enables him to meet "cute girls", then admitted he'd never kissed anyone before.
However, Glaze said he's had time to reflect on the moment since his audition, which was filmed in October, and told the NYT that he does not feel he was sexually harassed.
"Katy! You didn't", Glaze exclaimed, smiling. "I can't kiss a girl without being in a relationship". "American Idol" judge Luke Bryan asked during the audition, referencing Perry's 2008 song, "I Kissed a Girl (and I Liked It)".
When Perry heard him say he had never kissed a girl before, she said, "Come here". Instead, Glaze made headlines for receiving a surprise kiss from Idol judge Katy Perry. The "Roar" singer noticed the young man and candidly told him he could come hang out with her anytime. 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!"

Jamais depuis l'instauration de la démocratie, l'Allemagne n'avait eu besoin d'autant de temps pour se trouver un gouvernement. Affaiblie par des négociations exceptionnellement longues, la chancelière va devoir se battre pour conserver son rang.
The contestant was stunned when the singer gave him his very first kiss, according to reports. "I was a tad bit uncomfortable", he said, explaining that he had serious intentions for the romantic gesture. "I wanted it to be special".
Benjamin Glaze spoke to The New York Times about what he described as the "uncomfortable" kiss ― which happened to be his first kiss ever ― broadcast Sunday on the season premiere of the recently rebooted show.
"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", Glaze said. In the moment, Glaze was aghast, and Perry was victorious.
"I think you were a bit rushed and I think that's because I sped up your BPM of the heartbeat", she said. Glaze, shocked and smiling, fell down.
James Anderson replaces Ben Stokes as England vice-captain
However, Anderson belives that the team has learned from the mistakes and have a good chance against New Zealand . That's what we want to do as a team - get to a point where everyone has their say.
The first attempt to kiss her cheek was a failure because he didn't "make the sound", and the second time Katy did the old "turn the cheek" trick, forcing him to kiss her on the lips.
The judges cheered and high-fived.
Glaze ended up getting not making the cut for the show, and Perry took some of the blame. "I'm glad she did it because it's a great opportunity to get my music out".
Hopefully, Glaze's real first kiss is a positive and consensual situation for all parties involved.
