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. Now, several months after the audition, the singer is opening up about the encounter that left him feeling "a tad bit uncomfortable". "I wanted to save it for my first relationship. We all have celebrity crushes but it was really amusing because when they asked me to run in I was just beelining towards him and I had no idea I cut Katy off", she says, describing the moment Holmes found out he was through to the next stage of the competition. "But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately".
"I wanted to save it for my first relationship", he said. "Anyone else watching Idol feel like Katy Perry pressured that poor kid into letting her kiss him on the cheek and violated him by planting one on his lips?"
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.More news: Bullseye icon Jim Bowen dies, aged 80

Katy then beckoned him up to the panel, where she asked him to plant a kiss on her cheek.
But it didn't satisfy the 33-year-old popstar who complained that Benjamin "didn't make the smooch sound".
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 versus a romantic situation with someone you care about". Many viewers were also offended by such forward behavior.More news: Sane Trilogy, keyboard and mouse support
