The boy that got his first kiss from Carrie Underwood at her Louisville, Ky., is enjoying his few minutes of fame this week.

"I was shocked," Chase Kurnick, 12 said on the Today show this morning, sporting a #liptolip t-shirt.

Explaining why he told Underwood that they were going to do it "lip to lip," Kurnick said, "I wasn't just going to go up there and just get a little kiss on the cheek. If I'm going to get it, I'm going to get it right."

His parents helped him make the sign, they said. They were sitting in another spot in the auditorium when Underwood pulled him on stage. And when Kurnick went to school on Monday, he was a star.

"It took me like five minutes to get to one class," he said, because kids "were fist-bumping me. ... They were jealous."

He swears he hasn't washed his lips since. But he does have another target.

Who's next on his wish list? "Selena Gomez."
