Late actor Paul Walker was honored during Sunday's Teen Choice Awards by his Fast and Furious co-stars, especially his close friend, Vin Diesel.

"I can't stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about somebody very, very, very important to us," Diesel said as the audience exploded into loud cheers.

He continued, "One of the best blessings in our lives is the fact that we have the opportunity to call Paul our brother. Paul Walker is here in spirit with us."

And he ended his visibly emotional tribute with a shoutout to someone special in the audience: Paul Walker's daughter, Meadow.

"And since this is a Teen Choice Award," Diesel continued, "there is one teen in the audience that is a part of the family that kept us going. It's Paul Walker's family — his brothers, his parents — that kept us encouraged when we were filming Furious 7. But there's one very, very special teen here, and her name is Meadow Walker. I love all of you."
