Lea Michele won Choice TV Actress - Comedy for her role as Rachel Berry in Glee at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. She used the moment to honor Cory Monteith, who died tragically last month. Lea dedicated her award to Cory and gave an emotional tribute to her former co-star and boyfriend.

Lea said, "For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love we're gonna get through this together. He was very special to me and also to the world. We were very lucky to witness his incredible talent, his handsome smile and his beautiful, beautiful heart so whether you know him personally or just as Finn Hudson, Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts. And that's where he'll stay forever, so thank you guys so much."
