The dancer is a woman with black and curly hair. She has an orange undershirt with a black vest and a tie with white and pink stripes on top of that. Along with it, she has black shorts, and a belt and chain attached to the short. She also has open-toed orange heels. She has a purple outline.
In her remake, her outfit is 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 pants are shown in a slightly bluish color. 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.
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.
A scene from the Classic routine is featured in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.
The song has been shortened by about 47 seconds from the beginning.
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.
The beginning of the Classic routine has differences between the Xbox 360 and the Wii/PS3 version: on the Wii and PS3, the background and the coach zoom in fast, but this doesn't happen on the Xbox 360.
The Extreme routine is the first Extreme routine in the series.
Barbra Streisand is also the second song in the series to have an Alternate routine, after When I Grow Up.
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.
