The dancer is a woman with black, curly hair into a ponytail . She has an orange undershirt with a black vest and a tie with white and magenta stripes. Along with it, she has black shorts, and a white belt and chain around her waist on her shorts. She also has open-toed orange heels. She has a purple outline.
In her remake, she looks more realistic, the colors are the same but now they are shown in a lighter color scheme and slightly glow. Her tie now has purple stripes instead of magenta stripes. Her face is less visible and her outline changes colors depending on the color scheme of the background. It is orange if the color scheme is blue, blue if the color scheme is orange, and a darker purple if the color scheme is pink. Also, her hair is neater and in a dark shade of purple.
The extreme dancer is a man with long red hair and a purple mustache. He wears a turquoise head band, an orange sweater with purple and aqua stripes, purple shorts, green socks with a peach stripe and white and red shoes with purple laces. He has a pink outline.
The dancer is Papa Smurf. He has blue skin and a bushy white beard. He wears red pants and a matching red Phrygian cap.
The background is a dark street with lots of cafes and shops. Lots of neon signs light up with the beat of the song. There is also the word "STOP" on the ground with squares close to it, suggesting the dancer is dancing on the road.
The background will start pitch black at first. The sides of the road and then a stoplight light up and the dancer appears. The road is now wider. The buildings and road are now completely pitch black, but a glow emits from the buildings. The signs will now flash individually instead of all together and display different words and pictures. The word "STOP" and the squares around it are no longer visible with the rest of the road but will also light up like the signs. Additionally, instead of each part of the street having a blue, orange and purple color scheme respectively, the color scheme is a lighter blue, orange and pink respectively. When the dancer does the move where she pulls her right hand back and then moves it close to her left hand, the background slowly turns pitch black and a glow appears where her left hand is.
It contains silhouettes of a beach with flamingos, colorful palm trees and stripes that glow. It has a very similar appearance to the background from Mr. Saxobeat.
In the NTSC cover of Just Dance 3, the coach is displayed with longer hair and a completely different color scheme, as her shirt is pink instead of orange, her vest and shorts are fuchsia and purple instead of black, the stripes on her tie are orange instead of fuchsia and her shoes are fuchsia instead of orange. She also wears green leggings.
The longer haircut is also shown in other promotional images, where the coach is in her final color scheme.
The beginning of the Classic routine has differences between the Xbox 360 and the Wii/PS3 version: on the latter, the background and the coach zoom in fast, but this does not happen on the former.
In Just Dance 3, the Classic routine has a glitch: sometimes, the coach disappears and the song turns off immediately. However, the score tracking and all the other elements in the gameplay still work.
A scene from the Classic routine is featured in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.
The Classic coach appears in the teaser for the song "I’ll House You" by Don Diablo featuring Jungle Brothers, along with Wild and Just Dance.
In the remake, two pictogram have Just Dance 4-styled arrows in spite of the main model remaining the same.
In some parts of the Just Dance Now archives, the code name is misspelled as "BarbaraStreisand".
This typo is also present in the preview gameplay for the promotional video for Barbra Streisand (Extreme) and in The Smurfs Dance Party.
Barbra Streisand (Extreme Version) is the first Extreme routine in the series.
Barbra Streisand (Extreme Version) is the first routine in the main series that has to be unlocked through a specific code.
The code is in the buttons of the controller of the console and the order of how they are pressed. The pattern is up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right.
This code is also known as the famous Konami Code, a code used in various Konami games as a way to get extra lives or extra content. It fits, as an Extreme Version is extra content.
