Lea Michele dedicates Teen Choice Award to Cory Monteith

Lea Michele made her first public appearance following the death of her co-star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards.

Monteith, who co-hosted the Teen Choice Awards in 2010, was found dead July 13 in Vancouver, British Columbia. An autopsy revealed the 31-year-old actor died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

He and Michele played an on-again, off-again couple in the popular Fox series "Glee" and dated off-screen for about a year.

Michele won Choice TV Actress in a comedy for her role on "Glee" and took the stage to tearfully address the audience while wearing a necklace that said "Cory."

"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 difficult past few weeks," she said.
