Sixth Former Will Frogley had a once-in-a-lifetime experience; kissing pop star Katy Perry in front of an audience of 10,000! Will’s turn in the spotlight came when the star invited him on stage with her at Nottingham’s Capital FM arena. It was the fourth time he had been to one of her shows this year and she recalled him as previously she had spoken to him in the crowd!
Will said: ‘She recognised me and said “Oh, it’s you”. It’s amazing that she remembered three weeks later considering that she had been on a crazy schedule touring the world.’
The audience voted for which of two lucky men would get to meet Katy, and Will won. He spent over three minutes on stage and the resulting video is now on You Tube. ‘I was quite confident because otherwise you would be up on stage for five seconds and be off again. I remember it but not very clearly, it is too big a memory to contain! It was crazy really and a bit of a blur.
'It was nice getting on stage and having a bit of space around you because the crowd was packed at the front. I almost forgot they were there because you can only see the first couple of rows, the rest were in darkness. When I got back down all the people in the crowd went crazy. Katy Perry was really nice because later on in the show she looked down at me, smiled and waved. It makes you realise how small the world is when you are onstage with someone who is a global icon and kissing them on the cheek. My friends are really jealous!’
