There was very little suspense for Brooke Mills Simpson on "The Voice" reveal show Tuesday night.

Brooke was the very first singer announced as "safe," which means she’s officially part of the Top 8 and will compete next week.

Her mom and dad, Jimille and Mike Mills, were in the audience to cheer and celebrate.

Brooke, a Hollister native and a member of the Haliwa Saponi tribe, sang a beautiful rendition of “Amazing Grace” on Monday’s show. The song was Number 2 on iTunes charts on Tuesday, just below Beyonce’s “Perfect” duet with Ed Sheerhan.

Two singers were eliminated Tuesday night: Ashland Craft and Shi’Ann Jones.

What’s next

The next episode airs at 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11 on NBC. The remaining eight singers perform and viewers once again get a chance to vote. The following night, six singers will be revealed as safe and the bottom two have to perform for the chance for one to stay.
