In the weeks since boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith's untimely passing, Lea Michele has kept a low profile. Tonight she made her first public appearance at the Teen Choice Awards, accepting the statue for Choice TV Actress in a Comedy. She tearfully dedicated the win to his memory in a touching acceptance speech: "I wanted 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."

Watch her full speech here. As previously reported, Glee will deal with Monteith's passing directly in the third episode of the upcoming fifth season.
