Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a woman dressed like a 1950s housewife. She is wearing a polka dot hot pink and white dress with light blue ruffles on her sleeve, a light blue and white apron, a pair of light blue heels, and has pink short hair. She keeps her apron on before impatiently removing it at the end of the song and the choreography.
No visible differences are shown, except for the fact that the dancer looks more realistic, and that she is in a slightly lighter hue. Also, her outline has changed from violet to magenta. Her pumps are now light blue. Her hair has notably gotten darker.
The routine takes place in front of a light blue animated curtain with many white dots and cherries on it, and a wine-red line at its bottom. If you look closely, you can notice that the curtain slightly moves a bit.
Just Dance 3
In this version, the curtain is replaced by a dark blue wall with several mirrors. The cherries are hanging on them and they sway to the beat of the song.
The background is the same from the Just Dance 3 version. However, the cherries now glow every beat, and the background is darker.
There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine, both of which are the same; they are not available in Just Dance:
Both Gold Moves: Swing your right hand down as if to wipe away sweat.
