Harry Connick on when not to lick

Here is the wonderful Harry Connick Jr telling American Idol contestants how to sing. He articulated exactly what I (and surely many others) feel. When singers mess about with the written notes and riff for no reason it's plain silly. When I'm asked by singers about this I simply say, "Why are you doing that?". If it wasn't so tiresome to hear it would be funny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QKZ_xp4va0&app=desktop
