I was in the hospital and was not careful about reviewing laws of the Omer. I watched an online tape of a friend performing in a dance competition to music. I watched it multiple times. was this terrible?
Thank you for your question.
What you did was incorrect, and you should know for the future not to do this. Listening to such music is in violation of the minhag not to listen to music during this period. Be careful to be more careful about it for the future, but don’t let the yetzer hora get you down, by telling you that what you did is terrible, and that you it is a tremendous sin. Such thoughts are not productive, and in your case not a what Hashem wants you do to. Therefore, be careful about it in the future and more on.
