The routine is performed by a trio consisting of a man and two women.
P2 is a woman with long red hair. She wears half a navy blue blazer which covers a pink top, as well as half a black bra over a black lace shirt, a pair of black one-legged long pants, and navy blue heels, one of which has a leg strap. Her outfit is androgynous, being based to be half masculine and half feminine.
The backup dancers both wear black diamond encrusted masks, and black suits with matching shoes. P1’s (the male's) suit has red accents, and P3’s (the female's) suit has white accents.
The dancer is a nerdy boy with brown bobbed hair and orange sunglasses. He is wearing yellow and orange striped sweater, brown high-waisted pants with a brown belt, orange socks and brown shoes.
In the chorus, his sweater turns turquoise and his pants turn purple.
The background takes place in a circular warehouse. The walls have black curved bars, around are some light up squares and shining lights. The floors have a white circular lace design. The background is shown to start off as royal blue, and transitions to red. Numerous clones of the backup dancers are shown during the routine. At the chorus, the ceiling curves down with the wall and flashes white on the bars. The middle circle is a fiery orange and the walls rotate accordingly. The background turns black and flashes the dancers in the three circles. During the bridge, the dancers will appear one at a time on the panel behind them.
The alternate background takes place in a large library. During the first and second verses, the bookshelves and wooden floors are brown, the floors having a blue and white tile line. There are large arch windows shining daylight. The books on the bookshelf flash different colors throughout the routine. During the choruses, and for the rest of the routine after the second chorus, the library darkens, with multiple colored panels and the windows shining pink.

Born This Way has a Trio Mashup with the theme Triplets which can be unlocked for 1000 Mojo Coins (or 20 Mojo Coins for all old-gen consoles). It features trios whose dancers are similar in appearance.
The starting lines such as, "It doesn't matter if you love him", and the concluding lines such as, "Same DNA, but born this way" have been removed from the track used in-game.
The background is very ancient. According to the behind the scenes video, the outfits and the background were inspired by Cabaret Codes.
P2 does a pose which is similar to what Lady Gaga did in her music video for Applause.
In a teaser picture leaked on various social networks, it is shown that P2 has lipstick on one end of her lips and eye makeup on her right eye. She also has a suit on one end of her body and an outfit that looks similar to Lady Gaga's on the other side.
The routine uses some of the official choreography from the music video.
This is the second Lady Gaga’s song to be a Trio, after Bad Romance.
If the On-Stage version of Just Dance is counted, Born This Way becomes the third.
The suit was inspired by the music video. The only difference is that the suit in the video is black and white while, in the game, it is blue and grey. Also, Gaga was wearing the suit on both sides of her body while the dancer used in game is wearing it on one side of her body.
This is the third time in which a song by Lady Gaga used in Just Dance takes inspiration from its respective music video. This comes after the official choreographies of Applause and Bad Romance.
Similar to Hey Mama, the unplayable backup dancers in the background are performed by the same respective person according to the behind the scenes footage.
In the On The Set: Costumes video, it's revealed that the dancers have the teams' favorite costumes.
During the bridge, the background features a girl with short pink hair who may be the beta dancer for this routine. She looks similar to the feminine side of the lead dancer.
P2 was teased through a silhouette posted on Facebook.
In the square, P2 appears to be missing her make-up.
