Last night at the Teen Choice Awards, someone got a very special tribute. When Lea Michele was called to the stage to accept her award for Choice TV Actress: Comedy, she didn't focus on herself — she dedicated her entire speech to Cory Monteith.
With tears in her eyes, Lea said, "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. 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."
Lea added, "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."
Although it was a bittersweet moment, Lea was sure to make it really special for not only the Glee cast, but the fans of the show to ensure Cory is always remembered.
