Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman with pink hair. She has a tribal appearance, which includes a pink headdress with blue flowers, a pink, purple and blue two-piece fluffy outfit, and pink fluffy boots with purple straps. She wears several pink bracelets on her arms. She looks like a New Orleans carnival dancer.
The remake shows the dancer in a slightly darker color scheme. She is now presented with a thin blue outline, and her skirt has elements of dark blue and pink.
The dance takes place in a rainforest background. Because of this, there is grass and plants growing around the dancer's feet when she dances. The floor is reflective.
Just Dance 3 (Xbox 360)
On Xbox 360 copies of the game, some grass plants are more visible and the floor is not reflective. It looks more like she is in a real rainforest, unlike the Just Dance 2 one.
According to the files found from the code, the rainforest has been changed from green to bright blue. This may be because the background has been changed to night.
There are 8 Gold Moves in this routine (4 in the remake), all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: Spin your left hand in a clockwise direction and your right hand in a counter-clockwise direction at the same time and in rapid motion.
