Los Angeles - Lea Michele made her first public appearance at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday since the death of her Glee co-star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith.
Michele won Choice TV Actress for her role on Glee and tearfully dedicated the award to Cory, who died in a Vancouver hotel in July. Lea was also wearing a necklace that said "Cory," The Associated Press reports.
"For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with all your love we're gonna get through this together. He was very special to me and to the world," she said.
Glee also won the award for Choice TV Comedy, and cast member Amber Riley said, "Although we lost someone that we lost someone that we really love and that you guys love too, we are very fortunate to come back to a show where we feel the love of family, and Cory was like a brother to us."
Reily continued, "He was always ready to sign an autograph or take a picture with a fan, and he loves you Gleeks," People reports.
Co-star Jenna Ushkovitz added, "We know that Cory would have wanted to dedicate this award to you guys."
Before the show, another Glee co-star, Naya Rivera, said it was very therapeutic for the cast to be all together during this difficult time, The Associated Press reports.
Fox's Chairman of Entertainment revealed plans Thursday for how Cory will be written out of the show.
At a Television Critics Association panel in Los Angeles, Riley said that Cory's character Finn Hudson will be written out of the show in the third episode, People reports. The episode will "deal directly with the incidents in Cory's passing and the drug abuse in particular," Riley said.
Additionally, Glee producer Ryan Murphy will shoot PSAs with cast members in character, "as friends of Finn's. They're going to speak directly to the audience and I think they're going to be very impactful."
