Appearance of the Dancer
The coach is a woman with medium-length purple maroon hair in a side ponytail, silver hoop earrings, violet-red bangles on her right wrist, a violet-red and purple short sari with blue borders, and purple patent stiletto knee-length boots. She also has purple maroon lipstick.
In the remake, she has a completely different color scheme. She appears to glow and her skin turns black at some points. Her clothes now are in a different color scheme. She now wears a red and cyan sari with golden borders, her patent stiletto boots are now cyan, her bangles are now red and cyan and her hoop earrings are now golden. Her hair is now also cyan. During the bridge, her skin turns black.
The routine takes place in a small town, likely in India, with shops and power lines outside in the night. Behind the dancer is a small truck vehicle with a light that flashes. Also, a shooting star appears in the sky at some points. At some parts of the routine, confetti rains down.
In the remake, the routine takes place in front of a large group of buildings, with light patterns flashing. At one point, the background goes mostly dark except for the light patterns. It seems to be a modern place in India.
There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine, both of which are the same:
Both Gold Moves: Quickly throw your arms out.
