Mashups are routines that consist of choreography from both previous Just Dance titles and those from the current game integrated into a single routine, first appeared in Just Dance 3. Until its latest appearance in Just Dance 2017, the feature underwent a lot of updates. Mashups did not return in Just Dance 2018.

Description

PrinceAliP4LampAva This section needs to be updated for relevance. You can help by adding updated information.

Dance Mashups are routines that consist of dancers from previous Just Dance titles and the current game are all joined into one single routine, but not every dancer. There are two types of Mashups: regular and sweat. The original dancer from the song usually appears at the beginning and end of the routine, sometimes even during the middle of the song, if the song is Solo. If the Classic routine is a Duet or Dance Crew, a random Solo dancer takes the Duets/Dance Crew’s place; sometimes nothing replaces the dancers.

Just Dance 3

Just Dance 3 is the first game to have this mode. Here, there are three kinds of Mashups: Mashup, Duet Mashup and Sweat Mashup. Mashups and Duet Mashups have a kaleidoscopic background that can have different shapes and colors. Sweat Mashups have a gym as background.

Songs with Mashups in this game are:

Just Dance 4

Just Dance 4 is the second game to have this mode. Sweat Mashups and Duet Mashups were removed. The background is now a place with lots of lights and smoke. There are Wii U and PS3 exclusive Mashups. Another similar mode has been added, called Puppet Master Mode, where players use the Wii U gamepad to choose dancers in real time, similar to a Mashup.

Songs with Mashups in this game are:

PS3 & Wii U Exclusive Mashups

Just Dance 2014

The background for Just Dance 2014's Normal and Sweat Mashups is very bright. There are dancers from previous games in the background, and the center of the "wheel" is a dome which looks like half a disco ball. The ground is full of slots where the current dancer dances on.

Just Dance 2014 would only allow a small variety of dancers in the Mashups.

Just Dance 2015

Mashups and Party Master Modes re-appear once again in Just Dance 2015. Duet Mashups make their re-appearance after being dormant for 2 games. The Party Master background returns from Just Dance 2014 and the Mashup background returns from Just Dance 3. A single Dance Crew Mashup (marked as a Quatro Mashup) appears as the Classic routine for You're On My Mind. All Mashups have a theme now, so they use a small variety of dancers. Monthly Unlockable Mashups appear too, but they're invisible until they get unlocked.

Just Dance 2016

Mashups and Party Master Modes re-appear once again in this game. Duet Mashups appear again along with Dance Crew Mashups and Trio Mashups make their appearance too. The Party Master background returns from Just Dance 2015, and the Mashup background returns from Just Dance 2015, however, the color changes from one dancer to another. Monthly Mashups re-appear (though they do not have to be unlocked) and there are Xbox One, PS4 and Wii/Wii U exclusive Mashups, too.

Songs with Mashups in this game are:

8th Gen & Wii Exclusive Mashups

Just Dance Unlimited Mashups (8th Gen Exclusive)

Ubisoft Club Mashups (8th Gen Exclusive)

Just Dance 2017

Only Solo and Duet Mashups re-appear in this game, but the Party Master Mode has been removed. The Mashup background is the same from the previous game. On eighth-generation consoles and PC, the Mashups are playable via Just Dance Unlimited, meaning that an internet connection is required to play the Mashups except Scream & Shout. On Wii, the Mashups are unlockable for 20 Mojo Coins, similar to the last two games. Mashups are not available on the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3.

Trivia

  • Moves Like Jagger appeared in 19 Dance Mashups, making the most Mashup appearances in the games.
  • Crazy Christmas currently holds the record for appearing in at least one Mashup in every Just Dance entry, consecutively, since Just Dance 3.
  • The Sweat Mashup for Da Funk is the only mashup in the series that does not repeat any dancers, except for ending with the same dancer used at the start.
  • Almost all Mashups in the series repeat the same sequence of dancers (sometimes with small changes) for verses and choruses. Da Funk, What You Waiting For? and You're On My Mind are the only exceptions.
  • In Just Dance 2, the mode "Medley" was supposed to be named Dance Mashups.
  • In Just Dance 4 Mashups, sometimes the dancers' reflections tend to exceed the boundaries.
  • In Just Dance 3 Sweat Mashups, the background contains a poster which shows the background from Sway (Quien Sera). Also, on Xbox, there is a big window, while on Wii and PS3, there is a mirror that reflects the coaches.
  • On Just Dance 2015, mashups are pieced together in-game with each dancer excerpt being its own video in the game files rather than the mashup being one long video of all the dancers, with the exception for You're On My Mind. All other games in the series use one long video.
  • On the Wii version of Just Dance 2015, after playing a Mashup, the screen will flash a light blue for a split second before switching to the scoring screen.
  • In Just Dance 2015, a glitch will happen; when unlocking a monthly mashup, sometimes, you will lose 20 Mojo Coins, which is the amount of Mojo Coins that are required to unlock a Mojo Coin-unlockable Mashup.
    • Plus, if you access the Mashup via the JD Wall, the game will freeze after a few minutes.
  • On Just Dance 2015, the background of Mashups were supposed to change color each time a different dancer appears. However, this could not happen due to a glitch, and this only happened to You're On My Mind.
    • Despite this, the background color will change each time a Mashup is being replayed.
  • Starting with Just Dance 2016, mashups no longer begin and/or end with the original dancer, even if it fits the theme.
  • In Just Dance 2016 and 2017, the background glitches sometimes on Wii: when this happens, the moving hexagons at the sides have a rounded effect, as if the screen was seen from a sphere.
  • On Just Dance 2017, Mashups are only available on the 8th Gen Consoles, PC, Switch, and Wii. Xbox 360 and PS3 have no Mashups available.
  • In December 2016, the Mashup sections from Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance 2017 were removed for the Xbox One, Wii U, PS4, and PC. Mashups from Just Dance 2017 are still accessible through the "Favorites" section. They were added back to the menu at a later point.
  • On Just Dance 2015, the scores screen for Mashups show the album coach for the Classic routine of the respective song (for example, on the scores screen for the Mashup of Papaoutai, the Classic album coach appears). On Just Dance 2016 and 2017 for 7th-Gen consoles, instead, the Mashup album coach from the 8th-Gen versions of the games is shown.
