The routine is performed by a dance crew of all males. All of the coaches are wearing tuxedos, with the only difference being the color of their shoes, bow ties, hairstyles, and the inside of their blazers.
P1 has short hair, and has pink accents.
P2 has curly pompadour hair, and has turquoise accents.
P3 has short straight hair, and red accents.
P4 has short curly hair, and purple accents.
The extreme dancer is a woman with light blue hair. She wears an identical tuxedo to the coaches from the classic mode, a hot pink bow tie, and hot pink heels.
The background is a white-and-pink paneled floor with squares. There are also stars and lights that flicker in rhythm. At some parts of the choreography, you can see sparks coming out from the cliffs.
There is 1 Gold Move in the Classic routine:
Gold Move: Simply punch and with your opposite hand, hold your arm. P1 and P4 punch upward while P2 and P3 punch downward. P1 and P3 use their left hand, and P2 and P4 use their right hand.

Get GOOD when "What makes you beautiful" is sung
What Makes You Beautiful has a Mashup which is available on all platforms on Just Dance 4.
Some new sound effects are added in Just Dance Wii U.
On Just Dance 2015, P2’s avatar no longer has his black collar.
In the Wii U exclusive title screen for Just Dance 4, if one looks at P3 from the classic routine, they can notice that his shoes, glove, suit, and bow tie are green, so the color schemes for the dancers may have been different during development.
Although, it is unknown what P1, P2, and P4's beta color schemes were and it is unknown if these three dancers have beta color schemes.
After receiving over 98 million views on the GamesNewsOfficial channel, the Classic routine for this song has been the most-watched Just Dance routine in the series.
The background of What Makes You Beautiful appears in the Hebrew TV show מועדון לילה.
In the Puppet Master Mode, the (solo) Extreme coach appears in place of the Dance Crew.
This is one of two songs in which its Extreme routine does not follow the extreme background of the game; the other is the Extreme routine for Wild Wild West.
In the Mashup and Puppet Master Mode, the Extreme dancer’s bow tie, glove, and shoes are in a shade of dark red. However, in the Extreme routine, they are cherry pink.
Puppet Master Mode
In the song’s Puppet Master Mode, when the Extreme dancer walks around for the last several seconds of the song, she forcefully remains in one place, instead of fully walking around like in the original routine.
This always happens when a coach walks around.
There is a glitch in the Puppet Master Mode. At the end when the Extreme dancer reappears, the pictograms do not appear until the dancer appears herself, resulting in the pictograms appearing all of a sudden.
