"Starships" by Nicki Minaj is featured on Just Dance 2014, Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited.



Starships coach 1 big
The dancer is a woman that closely resembles Nicki Minaj, she wears the following:
  • A dress which appears to be purple, yellow, with stripes and dots on each sleeve
  • A big blue ribbon around her stomach/waist.
  • Pink-and-blue hair with pink, blue and orange flowers on it.
  • Black high-heels, blue socks that looks like a liquid is flowing on them


They are dressed in 40's style.


P1, a woman, wears a gray dress, a red headband, a pink necklace, maroon heels, and short pink hair.


P2, a man, wears a pink shirt, a red tie, maroon striped coat, red short pants, pink shoes, and short red hair.



The background is a blue sky with clouds and unrealistic (almost cartoony) metallic-looking rainbows with the colours (in-order) yellow, orange, pink, purple and darker purple. The dancer is standing on a flying pink candy-resembling platform that, like the rainbows, looks metallic-looking. When the chorus starts and "Starships" is sung the platform will be flying upwards to a pink sky with hot air balloons and blimps and then down again, this happens twice but the second time the platform will afterwards fly towards the screen and out of the hot air balloon's mouth. "We're higher than a ..." will then be sung and the platform flies into the mouth again, but the background turns into a background with many colors; most likely trying to be like in the music video. After the lyrics has been sung thrice the platform will once again fly in and out of the mouth and back to the normal blue sky. All of this repeats but after the second time when the bridge of the song appears the platform will instead fly into outer space after the background with many colors. The last verse is just like the two first ones. 


The background appears to be a stage with spotlights and a silver platform behind it. It looks nearly identical to Happy sing alongs background.

Gold Moves


There are a total of 4 Gold Moves in the Classic routine:
Gold Moves 1, 3 and 4: Bend your knees and pull your arms downwards while spinning your head in a clockwise direction during the line ''We Are Higher Than A ...''
Gold Move 2: Put your hands on your chin like a "Y" or "T" while leaning downwards when the line ''Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'' is sung.


There are 3 Gold Moves in the Charleston routine:
Gold Move 1 (P1): Slap P2's rear end sending him flying towards the right.
Gold Move 1 & 2 (P2): Put your left hand on your chest while pointing towards the right diagonally.
Gold Move 2 (P1): Put your hands up because P2 caught P1 with an invisible lasso.
Gold Move 3 (Both): P1: Put your hands on your hips. P2: Put your left hand on your left hip and put your right hand up.

  • They used the explicit version instead of the clean one, so the words "B***hes," "S**ts," "Motherf**ker" and "F**k" are censored. However, "Get it on" isn't censored, even though it was in C'mon. Also some of what was censored can still be briefly heard.
    • In the E3 trailer, Ubisoft used the Explicit Version meaning "motherf*cker" can still be heard.
    • B*tches and sh*t can be heard. They're only a bit muffled.
    • Some of the censors are the same as the official clean version, such as f**k, in the line "f**k who you want and f**k who you like."
  • This was originally going to be a DLC for Just Dance 4 along with Candy but both were taken out and put in Just Dance 2014 for more excitement.
    • This is why they were announced first.
  • The resolution goes down during the "color" background on YouTube videos because the colored background can cause people with epilepsy to have seizures. To raise it, it has to be 480p or higher.
    • The resolution doesn't go down in the game and on mobile phone though.
  • Not many dance moves of the alternate choreography give points due to the fact that they use only their legs a lot. This goes for both motion controller and camera consoles.
  • This song's classic coach won in the Most Stylish Female Coach category on the first Just Dance Awards.
  • If you look very closely, the classic coach bears a striking resemblance to Nicki Minaj especially when the chorus of the song is danced.
  • This is the fourth song by Nicki Minaj song in the series, after Super Bass, Beauty And A Beat (as a featured artist) and Pound The Alarm. It is followed by Bang Bang (second time as a featured artist) and Hey Mama (third time as a featured artist).
  • During the Party Master Mode, or any of them, if the regular one switches songs (Follow The Leader is one of them), it unexpectedly stops the song, any others who chose Starships have a 99.9% chance the song being quit. (Please edit this point for grammar)
    • The Party Master has a possible total of 13 Gold Moves, thus making the routine the one with the highest number of Gold Moves.
  • The Classic dancer appears on the PAL cover of the game, at the right.
    • However, her hair is combed neater, the colors have swapped sides and the flower crown only covers the left of her head.
  • The background of the Charleston version also appears in the Sing Along version of Happy.
  • The abduction effect at the start and the end is recycled from Crazy Little Thing.
  • Wesley Enriquez designed a dress for the video game "Animal Crossing: New Leaf", which is based on this song:
  • An image of the gameplay for this song appears on Just Dance Now in the image "Follow the dancer as if he's your reflection in a mirror" and "Grab your phone and dance!"; however, the song was not released at that time. That may be because the song was in the Demo version.
  • This coach makes a cameo appearance in the background of Uptown Funk in the second verse.
