MILWAUKEE - A Wisconsin girl making a splash on season six of The Voice returned home Friday for a visit.

Megan Ruger - who made several stops around Wisconsin - joined Live at Daybreak via telephone to talk about her experience so far.

Susan: Megan, Good Morning.

Megan: Good Morning!

Susan: It's probably pretty early for you - you have a long day ahead - how excited are you to be visiting some of your old stomping grounds?

Megan: Oh, I’m so excited. I'm officially stepping on Wisconsin soil, we just got here.

Vince: So Megan you signed on with Team Blake to start the show, you had your first coaching session with Blake and The Band Perry, tell us a little about that and what sort of advice did they give you that you're already able to incorporate into your music?

Megan: Kimberly actually from The Band Perry had some really great advice...she told me you know I have great pitch ... her brother told me that my harmonies were great. They were just really great to work with. It was definitely a plus that we not only had one mentor but we had three plus Blake.

Susan: What has this experience been like for you?

Megan: It's such an incredible experience. I have had so much fun. Every day is a new challenge, a new experience. I mean I never had vocal lessons and now I have a vocal coach, there's a choreographer, I've made some of the best friends from all over the world. I highly recommend it to any aspiring singer, it is such a great process.

It's like no other singing show, it has such an amazing process from the start; they don’t know what you look like, they don’t know where your from and then they just hear your voice and you are strictly judged on your voice. It’s a great experience.

Vince: Well you are from Wisconsin, we are really proud of you, we certainly hope you go deep in the show. Real quick, who's your biggest fan as you come back here?

Megan: Well, you know my Mom and Dad don’t live here anymore but they're my number one fans. But my Grandma she actually lives in Milwaukee and she is definitely my number one fan …
