Katy Perry robs 'American Idol' contestant of 'special' first kiss

According to The New York Times, the smooch that happened during the opening episode of the rebooted talent show was Glaze's first, and he'd been saving it for his first relationship. "I was a tad bit uncomfortable", he said, explaining that he had serious intentions for the romantic gesture. "I wanted my first kiss to be special". I wanted it to be special, ' he said. When he was coyly discussing his job as a cashier and how he uses it to meet "cute girls", one of the other judges playfully asked "have you ever kissed a girl and liked it?"

The 19-year-old had his first kiss with pop star Katy Perry on national TV. She beckoned him over to the judges' table for a kiss on the cheek, but at the last moment, pecked him on the lips instead.

Not only was Glaze's first kiss a let-down for him, but Perry wasn't impressed with his singing either as the judges chose not to let Glaze advance to the next stage.

While he failed to make it to Hollywood in the audition, Glaze says the public attention he's received from the kiss has helped publicise his music and he's appreciative of the extra airtime. The "Roar" singer noticed the young man and candidly told him he could come hang out with her anytime.

But hours later, the Oklahoma native is clarifying his previous statements via Instagram, saying that he doesn't feel as though he was "sexually harassed" by the popstar.

But not as thrilled as Cage , who named his son Kal-El and called his unmade Superman movie "the Superman" movie . Now for the most notable name, Nicolas Cage will be providing the voice for his favorite DC character Superman .

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".

"They agreed with me that it didn't really count", he said.

Though the kiss went viral, and was tweeted about by Perry and used in ABCs promotions for the new season of Idol, Perry has faced some backlash from fans in light of the Times Up movement and increased dialogue surrounding sexual impropriety.

'I know a lot of guys would be like, "Heck yeah!"

Oh, that's right - Katy Perry stole the first kiss of someone.
