Need to Know News: Few details in Whitney Houston's death; Obama to outline his 2013 budget plan

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For February 13, 2012 – Few details in Whitney Houston's death, Obama to outline his 2013 budget plan and Adele dominates the Grammys...

• More questions than answers surround sudden death of Whitney Houston: There were more questions than answers Monday about Whitney Houston's sudden death, with authorities offering few details even as the iconic singer's passing loomed large over music's biggest night. Coroners completed the autopsy Sunday on Houston, who was found dead a day before in her suite in the upscale Beverly Hilton just hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards bash at the hotel."

• Obama will present his 2013 budget plan Monday: "When President Barack Obama rolls out his 2013 budget proposal Monday, it's likely to unleash another round of political finger-pointing on Capitol Hill. The White House bills the document as a 'blueprint for how we can rebuild an economy where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded.'"

Mitt Romney's victories mask lingering questions about his candidacy: "Mitt Romney's twin victories Saturday in Maine and in a conservative straw poll were badly needed bright spots for his campaign at the end of what was perhaps the most humbling week of his presidential candidacy, a five-day stretch that exposed the former Massachusetts governor's frail relationship with conservatives."

Stocks gain after Greece OKs austerity: "U.S. stocks were higher early Monday after the Greek Parliament approved a key austerity package, raising hopes the nation will avoid a messy default. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 54 points, or 0.4%, in morning trading. The S&P 500 added 7 points, or 0.5%. The Nasdaq rose 23 points, or 0.8%."

Adele dominates Grammys as tributes to Whitney Houston flow: Adele thanked her doctors 'who brought my voice back' as she accepted one of six Grammy awards Sunday night, and she later proved their work was true with a strong vocal performance. The 23-year-old British songstress was crying by the time she accepted her sixth award - for the most prized album of the year Grammy."

    Thanks Amelia, Kayla and Nicole! I can't wait to see all the photos. You did a wodfurnel job as I knew you would. It was so great to work with you. I really appreciate how you took your time and truly tried to find out who Morgan is and didn't try to make her photos like everyone else's. God has given you great talent and I'm so excited that you are using that for His glory. Blessings to all of you!
