Although Susan Boyle admits she was just joking when she said she's never been kissed, former American Idol star Michael Johns is happy to do the honors.
"I already said I'd kiss her myself if I ever saw her," the Australian singer told Usmagazine.com at the L.A. premiere of Wolverine Tuesday.
The Scottish singing sensation -- who is favored to win Britain's Got Talent -- has gotten as much attention for her frumpy look as she has for her voice.
"As a person that loves music -- when did you have to be good looking to be a good singer?" Johns, 30, tells Us. "It doesn't matter what you look like. Idol's proven it doesn't matter what you look like. If you can sing, America will vote for you. Susan Boyle is a good story, I like that."
What will Johns' wife think of a potential smooch with Susan?
"I think she'd let me pass [on] that one," he says.
Johns -- who was a Season Seven finalist on the Fox reality show -- performed his new single, "Heart on My Sleeve," on Idol last week and served as a mentor to the current contestants.
"That was really fun, but you always feel a little unsure, you know what I mean?" he says, adding that he'll be on the season finale as well. "It's weird, my stomach starts churning and everything. I don't know. I love it. It's a great family, and they've been so good to me."
