Appearance of the Dancers

Kidsthelionsleepstonight coach 1 big

The main dancer is a girl wearing a camouflage shirt with dark grey shorts. She is also wearing a beige vest and boots. Her background dancer on the left wears a camouflage one-piece dress with a black tank top underneath. She also wears black leggings and brown country boots. The other one wears a camouflage tiger tank top, and beige short-shorts.


The background appears to be in a cartoony jungle setting below a blue sky with clouds and a sun with a roaring lion which rises up in the beginning of the routine. Halfway through the routine, the sun sets turning to nighttime and a moon with the same roaring lion appears.

The coach is accompanied by two backup dancers. The backup on her left is wearing a shirt with a V neck ruffled collar and a beige skirt. She also has black leggings boots. The backup on the right is wearing a camouflage tank top with light olive green shorts and boots similar to the main dancer.

Gold Moves

There are 6 Gold Moves in both original and the remake, all of which are the same:

All Gold Moves: Bring your arms up and claw with your hands, all while bending down.


  • The Lion Sleeps Tonight is mentioned in the lyrics for Mashed Potato Time.
  • An updated cover of the song is used in the remake.
    • Additionally, the "shhhh" sound effect at the end is removed.
  • The Lion Sleeps Tonight has the second shortest pictogram sprite in the main series, with 16. It is only beaten by Girlfriend.
  • In Just Dance Unlimited, the line "The quiet jungle" is misinterpreted as "The mighty jungle".
    • This is a very common misunderstanding of the line.
  • After an update made on an unknown date, the song is titled as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh)" on Just Dance Unlimited.
  • The sound for the lion’s avatar on Just Dance Unlimited is recycled for P1’s from Magic Halloween.
