The background seems to be a clock that reflects the sky above. In the first verse, the color of the clock is dark red 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.
Just Dance 3 (Xbox 360)
There is more animation in the Xbox 360 background.
Just Dance 3 (PS3)
In the PS3 version of Just Dance 3, the clock is reddish-brown in the verses and aqua in the chorus, and it does not reflect anything.
The remake uses the Wii/PS3 background, except the gears move when "tick tock" is sung, the clock in which the dancer is standing and the clouds are modified.
