Serenity, you're making me think of Ned on South Park.
I've now got this mental image of Ned trying to sing O sole mio
. Oh man....
There should be NO note spread in a vibrato. A proper vocal vibrato doesn't vary pitch as much as it varies intensity - it may sound like a miniscule variance in pitch only because the placement changes ever-so-slightly with the change in air flow. Correct vibrato is only a change in air flow, not a change in the vibration of the vocal folds.
It's a totally natural oscillation produced by the body. That's why it sounds natural when it's done right.
When Ja-....uh, I mean, that lady wobbles like that, it's a wobble, not a vibrato.
