The dancer is a woman with hot pink poofy hair with yellow highlights. She wears a yellow dress with streaks of purple, that have a arrow-like design, the center of the skirt has purple ruffles. She also wears yellow ankle boots with purple cuffs and a pink bracelet on her left wrist. During the chorus, her dress turns teal and the streaks turn dark red. Her boots also turn teal with red cuffs, and the highlights on her hair also turn teal. She has a pink outline.
In the coach selection image for the Mashup of Maps, she looks more realistic. Her face is slightly visible, and the streaks on her dress during the verses and bridge are slightly more reddish. She now has a blue outline.
RemakeIn the remake, her face is less visible, and her hair Is now darker. Her boot cuffs during the verses and bridge are now dark blue. She keeps her blue outline from the menu assets of Maps’ Mashup.
The background seems to be a clock. In the first verse, the clock's color is pink and when the chorus begins, the color scheme changes to blue. There are clouds which change from pink to stormy blue and clockwork and gears in the far background. The dancer is standing on a platform which seems to be a clock. There is more animation in the Xbox 360 background.

- The top two arrow-stripes on the dancer’s dress were green but, in the final release they are purple like the others.
- Gold Move 2 sometimes appears to have a shorter delay between the in-shine and the aftershine on Xbox 360: if the move is performed correctly, then the aftershine will appear immediately after the pictogram fades and after the in-shine finishes, but not as fast as the Wii and PS3.

- On Xbox 360, the first pictograms of the routine slide much slower than the others.
