The dancers are all women dressed as brides. They start out completely black during the verses and bridge, but during the chorus they can be seen clearly. Everything they wear is white.
P2 wears a legless jumpsuit and wedding veil. She has a purple fingerless glove and monster claws. During the chorus, she wears a headpiece covered with flowers and a puffy high-low dress. There appears to be netting hanging from the headpiece. She has a purple outline.
P1 and P3 wear midriff tops, shorts, and wedding veils (which are much smaller than P2's). They have red fingerless gloves and monster claws. During the chorus, they wear one-piece leotards and their veils are larger. They have a purple outline.
The alternate coach is a man with short black hair. He wears a pink blindfold, a teal one-sleeved cropped shirt that's highly cut on the left, a dark pink crop top and black shorts. He also wears pink and blue striped socks, black boots. His glove is fingerless.
During the verses and bridge, the background is completely pitch black. During the chorus, white randomly connected lines appear. At the end of the song, it is made clear that the dancers' wedding gowns touched the ground and turned into a pile of lace.
It uses the Extreme background from the previous game; an array of flashing platforms and quadrilaterals. The colors that flash are red, violet, and teal.
Bad Romance has a mashup with the theme Monsters which can be unlocked in October. It features monsters/spooky dancers.
As of June 21, 2015, Bad Romance is no longer in the Solos section of Just Dance Now.
This is the first routine in the whole series to lack chroma key; the second is Radical. However, this uses chroma keying in the chorus, while Radical has no chroma key at all.
This is the first time when the dancers are completely white, as well as hardly visible.
This is also the first time the coaches' skin color is not tan/yellow like in Hot n Cold because they are wearing white clothes. In fact, if you look closely, their skin is pointed to a more flesh color; it can be seen well in an HD photo.
This is the second song after Hot n Cold in which its dancer(s) are wearing wedding gowns.
This is the first time that a dancer changes her real-neon contrast to real in the main series.
The US preview gameplay has the interface in the style of the most of the E3 previews, with the player nicknames in all-caps, the feedback "bounce" effect from Just Dance 2014, and actual players scoring mostly Perfects instead of bots scoring randomly. This could suggest that the song was planned to be revealed at E3.
In a trailer revealing some unknown routines, which says "Adding new flavors to the mix" one of the dancers is seen with the same elements as that in the classic mode for this track. He was a black silhouette and was under dark blue sheets, just like the backup dancers for the classic mode.
Bad Romance is the first ever all female Trio dance mode in the series, not counting the Just Dance (On-Stage) and Dancing Queen.
This is the second song in the main series that has an official choreography, after Applause in Just Dance 2014.
The official choreography uses a move from When I Grow Up (third contest winner choreography). In this case it is very possible the contest winner used a move from the music video, so Bad Romance’s alternate mode did not exactly recycle the move.
The official choreography is claimed by Ubisoft to be the hardest choreography ever in the series when it is unlocked.
The dancer in the official choreography can be seen lip syncing the line Rah rah ah ah ah, roma-roma-ah, Gaga, ooh-la-la, want your bad romance. He only lip syncs a few of these repeated lines.
Both routines use some of the official choreography for the song with slight changes for the choreography when the chorus is sung.
The Mashup features quite possibly the earliest appearance of a Gold Move in relation to the beginning of the song and move number. The first Gold Move appears as the second move (during I Will Survive) in the entire choreography.
Bad Romance’s Mashup ties with Chicken Payback, S.O.S, and Circus’s Mashup for the earliest appearance of a Gold Move in the main franchise, where the first in the entire choreography appears as the second pictogram. However, the one for Bad Romance’s Mashup appears the earliest.
The Community Remix of the Classic version has no pictograms, because only P2’s moves are performed.
In the preview video, shown on the Just Dance World website, the UI in the Classic version is based on the beta version of Just Dance 2016. This is because of the Just Dance Unlimited service, which was introduced in that said game.
