Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a schoolgirl. She has purple hair in two pigtails, a pink shirt, a purple and white striped tie, a purple vest, a purple checkered skirt, pink knee-length socks, and purple sneakers.
The background is an empty city, with a lattice, three lamp posts, and skyscrapers.
In the Just Dance 3 version, it is pinker and it has some flashing lights behind the skyscrapers, along with some fog. A ringing bell can be briefly heard at the beginning of the routine.
In the remake, the background has some 2D houses, a fence, some 2D arrows in American style, pedestrian crossings, and shadows of skyscrapers. There are some angulation changing effects, the houses and the arrows glow; furthermore, a ringing bell can be heard at the beginning.
The routine appears to be taking place on the roof of a house. There is a city with a lot of skyscrapers in the background.

All Shout-Out Lines: “We’re the kids in America”
Kids in America appears in the following Mashups:
- The "woah" and "la la" lines are not written down in the lyrics.
- The JD square of the coach has her bracelet on her left arm. This was fixed in the JD3 square.
- The lyrics contain a minor capitalization error: the "Y" in "New York" (in the line "New york to East California") is not uppercase.
- The background closely resembles New York City.
- Some elements from the remake are recycled in Uptown Funk.
- As of an unknown date, the remake found in the Just Dance Now files has been updated to a newer one. There are several differences between the two versions:
- The coach appears to be darker and with a thicker outline.
- The color palette in the updated remake is much brighter.
- The older one starts with some cheering sounds, while the newer one starts with a ringing school bell.
- In the older one, the coach’s silhouette fades in before the opening circular effect; in the newer one, instead, the circle opens and zooms in towards the coach, who already has all her colors.
- There are many more animations and zoom effects in the updated version.
- In the Beta remake, the audio and video are out of sync with the rest of the routine.
- The first 3 counted moves (4 on Xbox 360) are not counted as moves in the original Just Dance.
- In Just Dance 3 and the remake, one of the pictograms has incorrect shading: most of the shading is placed at the bottom. Also, part of the left hand is cropped out.
