How to move point in emms playlist?

I am always a little irritated that the currently playing track is not at point 
(I'm using hl-line-mode), so there are 2 highlighted lines, point and current 
track. I wanted to fix that with:

  (defun tvd-emms-follow-playing-song()
      (when emms-playlist-selected-marker
        (goto-char emms-playlist-selected-marker))))

  (add-hook 'emms-playlist-selection-changed-hook 'tvd-emms-follow-playing-song 

However, this doesn't work, point is not moved when a new song starts to play.

When I execute the function manually, it works (I added a couple of print 
statements to the function, which are being executed every time the song 
changes). So, it's actually being executed by the hook, but the goto-char part 
doesn't have any effect.

Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong here?

Many thanks in advance,
