“Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no. I know a lot of guys would be like, ‘Heck yeah!’"

He pointed out that he was raised in a conservative family and it's one of the reasons why he felt uncomfortable when the Dark Horse singer kissed him.

The unwanted smooch happened after Glaze entered the audition room and judge Luke Bryan asked him: “Have you kissed a girl and liked it?” Bryan referenced Perry’s song I Kissed a Girl during that time.
