Lea Michele made her first public appearance at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards on August 11 following the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith. She took to the stage in a pretty pink ensemble to accept the award for Choice TV Comedy Actress.

The 26-year-old actress broke down in tears as she paid tribute to Cory while accepting her award. She was talking through tears saying,

Thank you, guys. Thank you.

I just wanted to be here today to personally thank all of you and tell everyone out there how much all of your love and support has meant to me over these very past difficult few weeks. Not that I had any doubt before, but you guys are most certainly the greatest fans in the world.

And I want to dedicate this award to Cory, for all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did. I promise that with your love, we’re going to 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 knew 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.

Everybody at home and in the audience was undoubtedly moved by her acceptance speech! Even celebrities at the event were teary-eyed as they listened to Lea’s brave tribute:
