The 2013 Teen Choice Awards recognized the top stars from film, television, music, sports and fashion on Sunday and fans are still talking about the winners.
"Glee" star Darren Criss and Lucy Hale from "Pretty Little Liars" served as co-hosts of the awards show, which saw over 150 million votes cast by teens who selected the winners.
With performances by One Direction, Florida Georgia Line and Demi Lovato, the Teen Choice Awards also saw A-list presenters and super star winners.
Most notably, "Glee" star Lea Michele took the stage to accept the award for Choice TV Actress: Comedy when she paid tribute to her late boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith.
Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver, Canada hotel on July 13, and an autopsy revealed that the 31-year-old died from a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol.
An emotional Michele made her first public appearance at the TCA's where she thanked fans and dedicated her award to Monteith.
"Thank you guys, thank you. I just wanted to be here today to personally thank you all and tell everyone out there how much your love and support has meant to me over these very difficult past few weeks," said the 26-year-old actress. "Not that I had any doubt before, but you guys are most certainly the greatest fans in the world."
Furthermore, Michele recounted her love and grief for Monteith.
"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," she added. "He was very special to me and also to the world. We were lucky to witness his incredible talent, his handsome smile and his beautiful, beautiful heart. So whether you knew him personally of just as Finn Hudson [on "Glee"], Cory reached out and he became part of all of our hearts and that's where he will stay forever. So thank you guys so much. Thank you."
