The dancers are all women dressed as brides. They start out completely black during the verses and bridge, but during the chorus they can be seen clearly. Everything they wear is white.
P2 wears a legless jumpsuit and wedding veil. She has a purple fingerless glove and monster claws. During the chorus, she wears a headpiece covered with flowers and a puffy high-low dress. There appears to be netting hanging from the headpiece. She has a purple outline.
P1 and P3 wear midriff tops, shorts, and wedding veils (which are much smaller than P2's). They have red fingerless gloves and monster claws. During the chorus, they wear one-piece leotards and their veils are larger. They have a purple outline.
The alternate dancer is a man with short black hair. He wears a pink visor, a teal one-sleeved cropped shirt that's highly cut on the left, a pink crop top and black shorts. He also wears pink and blue striped socks, black boots and a royal blue fingerless glove.
During the verses and bridge, the background is completely pitch black. During the chorus, white randomly connected lines appear. At the end of the song, it is made clear that the dancers' wedding gowns touched the ground and turned into a pile of lace.
It uses the Extreme background from the previous game; an array of flashing platforms and quadrilaterals. The colours that flash are red, violet, and teal.
Bad Romance has a mashup with the theme Monsters which can be unlocked in October. It features monsters/spooky dancers.
There are 3 Gold Moves in the Classic routine, all of which are the same: All Gold Moves: At the chorus, P2, bring your arms downward and upward as if you are sending a kiss; P1 and P3, swing your arms up and down.

All Gold Moves in-game
There are 3 Gold Moves in the Official Choreography: Gold Moves 1 and 2: When the chorus begins, bring your arms downward and give your legs a slight shake while kneeling. Gold Move 3: When the third chorus begins, quickly bring your arms upward and give them a strike.
The Classic version of Bad Romance has a Community Remix.
The following are featured:
Luffy Sama Br [Brazil]
SAID SOCRAM [Brazil]
Beto Ordaz [Mexico]
Amandamoonmu [Hong Kong]
Misa Yorke [Brazil]
The Official Choreography also has a Community Remix only featuring the finalists from the Just Dance World Cup. Thus, it is the first 'themed' Community Remix in the series.
The following are featured:
Bad Romance is the third song by Lady Gaga song in the series.
The words "stick" (a reference to male genitalia) and "b**ch" are censored.
The US preview gameplay has the interface in the style of the most of the E3 previews, with the player nicknames in all-caps, the feedback "bounce" effect from Just Dance 2014, and actual players scoring mostly Perfects instead of bots scoring randomly. This could suggest that the song was planned to be revealed at E3.
This is the first time when the dancers are completely white, as well as hardly visible.
This is also the first time the coaches' skin color is not tan/yellow like in Hot n Cold because they are wearing white clothes. In fact, if you look closely, their skin is pointed to a more flesh color; it can be seen well in an HD photo.
This is the second song after Hot n Cold in which its dancer(s) are wearing wedding gowns.
This is the first time that a dancer changes her real-neon contrast to real in the main series.
Both routines use some of the official choreography for the song with slight changes for the choreography when the chorus is sung.
This is the second song in the main series that has an official choreography, after Applause in Just Dance 2014.
Bad Romance, which was released in 2009, is the oldest 21st century song in Just Dance 2015.
Barring downloadable tracks, it is the only song from the 2000s in the game.
Bad Romance is the first ever all female Trio dance mode in the series, not counting the Just Dance (On-Stage) and Dancing Queen.
The game uses the album version of Bad Romance, which has a duration of 4:56.
It is the longest song in the main series, but it ties with Kiss Datte Hidarikiki from the Japanese series.
The Mashup features quite possibly the earliest appearance of a Gold Move in relation to the beginning of the song and move number. The first Gold Move appears as the second move (during I Will Survive) in the entire choreography.
Bad Romance’s Mashup ties with Chicken Payback, S.O.S, and Circus’s Mashup for the earliest appearance of a Gold Move in the main franchise, where the first in the entire choreography appears as the second pictogram. However, the one for Bad Romance’s Mashup appears the earliest.
In a trailer revealing some unknown routines, which says "Adding new flavors to the mix" one of the dancers is seen with the same elements as that in the classic mode for this track. He was a black silhouette and was under dark blue sheets, just like the backup dancers for the classic mode.
The official choreography uses a move from When I Grow Up (third contest winner choreography). In this case it is very possible the contest winner used a move from the music video, so Bad Romance’s alternate mode did not exactly recycle the move.
The official choreography is claimed by Ubisoft to be the hardest choreography ever in the series when it is unlocked.
The dancer in the official choreography can be seen lip syncing the line Rah rah ah ah ah, roma-roma-ah, Gaga, ooh-la-la, want your bad romance. He only lip syncs a few of these repeated lines.
As of June 21, 2015, Bad Romance is no longer in the Solos section of Just Dance Now.
