Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a man with black neatly combed hair. He wears a red suit with black edges and trims, light orange long sleeved undershirt with a small cyan bow tie, a cyan handkerchief in his breast pocket of his coat, black slacks, orange socks and red dress shoes. Whenever "Now baby, baby..." is sung, the dancer turns to a figure made of static, where he stays like this until "Baby why'd you..." is sung. He has a tan colored outline.
In the remake, he looks slightly more realistic. His hair and slacks are now darker. Most of his outfit colors remain the exact same from Just Dance 3 but has a more realistic color palette. He is also presented with a thin blue outline.
Just Dance 3 (Wii/PS3)
The routine takes place in an old TV set. The coach dances on a small stage with a brown reflective floor, two rows consisting of four yellow spotlights each and an ochre yellow pedestal. What seems to be an Indian head test pattern from the ’80s can be seen on a beige wall. Except for the frequency bars, all the elements in the head test pattern are motionless. The scenery is surrounded by the TV frame, which consists of a light brown one, a dark brown one surrounded by a silver outline and a final grey one.
The routine starts with a loud buzzing effect accompanied by a male voice and a static screen, which fade away quickly and are followed by the coach, who appears with a white blink effect and static lines that fade away as soon as the song starts. The screen keeps a sepia tone for the entirety of the first chorus. When the coach moves his elbow towards his body, the spotlights light up one by one, starting from the first one on the right; then, they light up in pairs, raise and go down again. After that, the sepia tone fades away, the scenery retains its original colors and the wheels on the head test pattern start rotating.
During the verses, one opposite row of spotlight lights up when the coach walks from one side to another (for example, when he walks to the left, the right one lights up), and then all of them light up together when he claps his hands. When he points his fingers up, each one lights up consecutively, in the same order that was used in the first chorus (even though they light up together twice before raising in this case). When the coach raises his arms, the spotlights raise together and light up again in the same order as before.
In the second and third choruses, the wheels on the head test pattern freeze again. When the coach moves his arm away from his body while raising his leg, two spotlights at a time light up. When he closes his arms in a circle, the right row lights up in a wave before the left one, and then they turn back off. When the coach does his "shhh" pose, the spotlights raise, and then they go back down. With the exception of the aforementioned instances, the animations for the spotlights remains the same as the ones seen in the first chorus.
Before the bridge starts, the coach gets a blurry effect followed by a white blink that makes him turn entirely static, with the exception of his glove and his bow tie. After a few seconds, however, his color return. The wheels on the head pattern rotate again, and the spotlights light up in turn starting from the first one on the right while the coach walks towards the left, and then, after turning back off for a brief period of time, they raise when he kneels down. When the coach points his finger to a side, they light up in pairs, and then they light up singularly starting from the farthest ones in each row while he shakes his elbows When the coach does the latter move faster, the order is inverted.
Along with the coach’s white blink, two rows of three female background dancers appear on the pedestal with the same blink effect and move along to the beat. The left ones have straight shoulder-cut hair, whereas the right ones have curly hair in an afro. At first, they have the same static effect as the coach, but then they turn into bordeaux red silhouettes whose color turns darker towards the bottom. They also share the coach’s orange outline. When the coach kneels down, they bend over and put their hands near their mouth, as if they were shouting. When the coach points his finger to one side, the respective dancers raise their arm (for example, the left ones do so when he points to the left), and they lower their arm in semicircle when the coach shakes his elbows. When the coach does the latter move faster, the background dancers shake their shoulders and feet.
During the final chorus, the wheels keep spinning and the background dancers gradually fade away. As soon as the coach spins, the scenery turns back to sepia; after that, the coach gets his static effect again and fades away abruptly with a white blink, and the TV screen goes back to static.
Just Dance 3 (Xbox 360)
In the Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 3, the TV frame is wider and with thinner, the stage has more saturated colors, the pedestal has another smaller pedestal on top, the wheels are positioned differently, the frequency bars are absent, and there is a brown oval fade on the corners of the wall. Besides, the spotlights are bigger and brighter, and they cannot be seen when they are not turned on.
In the intro, the sound effects at the beginning are less loud, the entire scenery is in black and white rather than in a sepia tone, and the blink effect that precedes the coach’s appearance also looks slightly different. In this part, the spotlights have the same effects as the ones in the Wii and PS3 version.
In the verses, the spotlights only turn off when the coach claps his hands the second and fourth time. When the points his finger to the sky, each row lights up alternatively. When he shakes his hands, two spotlights intermittently light up in each row.
In the chorus, two spotlights light up in each row when the coach moves his arms away from this body, and then they turn back off once the entire row is lit. When the coach closes his arms in a semicircle, the rows turn off more quickly, and they only turn off when the coach does his "shhh" pose. They also raise before the ones on Wii and PS3 do.
In the bridge, the background dancers are positioned in front of the pedestal and not on it, and the animation that introduces them is slightly slower. The spotlights turn on gradually and remain lit without moving, until they fade away again. When the coach points his finger to the background dancers, two alternate spotlights of each row light up consecutively (i.e. the second and fourth ones, and then the first and third ones); then they turn off and then back on in a wave.
In the final chorus, the screen turns black and white before the coach spins, and it does not go to static.
In the remake, the background looks more realistic, with a static screen appearing early, the static screens are more realistic, and when With a.. is sung, the background changes to the colored version and a retro TV turn off after the song. The backup singers are also given a slight HD-remake.

Forget You appears in the following playlists:
Just Dance 3
- Pop! Pop!
- R&B Vibes
- Sweat Attack
- The clean version of the track is used in the game. The original title of "F**k You" was replaced with "Forget You", and "s**t", "ass", and "n***a" are censored. Additionally, the backup lines "(Oh sh*t she’s a gold digger)" and "(Just thought you should know n***a)" do not appear in the lyrics.
- This marks the first time that a song has replaced its original title with its clean version.
- The second time this happened was with Work Work.
- In the remake, the highlighting in the line "Ha now ain’t that some shhhh?" is off-sync the first time it is sung.
- The routine uses two different takes of the choreography. This is most noticeable during the start of the bridge.
- However, the remake starts the second take during the second part of the bridge.
- At the beginning of the choreography, when the TV is in the monochrome shade, the scoring icons and pictograms are in that shade too.
- However, this is only the case for the Wii and PS3. On the Xbox 360, the scoring icons keep their colors.
- The scoring icons in Simon Says Mode are also monochromatic at the beginning of the song.
- In the Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 3, the background dancers that appear in the bridge are not aligned with the pedestal, which is placed farther away from the screen compared with the Wii and PS3 version.
- This also happens because the background dancers are rendered together with the coach himself in the game files.
- At the end of the routine in Just Dance 3, the dancer immediately fades away after pointing at the screen. However, this is not the case in the Mashup for Ain’t No Mountain High Enough on Just Dance 2015, as he can be seen pointing at the screen for five seconds and then walking away.
- Sometimes on the Wii version of Just Dance 3, Gold Move 2 will not be seen or counted for.
- This glitch also happens in Simon Says Mode.
- The menu icons for Dançando and Forget You can be seen in the lower part of a promotional screenshot in the October 22, 2015 version of justdancenow.com in spite of these two routines not being available yet.
- Although the remake uses newly-created pictograms, the original ones can still be found in the Just Dance Unlimited servers.
- On Twitter, the official Just Dance account ran a poll asking which song should be the last from Season 2 on Just Dance Unlimited, and the options were Forget You and Louie Louie. Since Forget You won, it was announced that it was going to be added to the service on May 28, 2020.
- The album coach in Just Dance Unlimited uses the white fade effect from Just Dance 2014 and 2015.
- A different album coach was used in the artbook, The Art of Just Dance (10th Anniversary Edition), which uses the full body of the coach and removes the white fade.
- Forget You is the second routine to have borders in its background, succeeded by Ona Tańczy Dla Mnie, Buscando’s Classic routine, and its Extreme Version.
