Appearance of the Dancer

Classic

Dontstopme coach 1 big

The dancer is a man with black hair. He first starts out with a red and black checkered glitter suit with large blue sleeves and black shoes and a light blue faded outline. Shortly after the beginning, the dance transports through the dancers sleeve to reveal the dancers transformation. The transformed dancer sports a blue eye tattoo, a red and gold jacket, a blue tank top, black leggings with purple glitter checker and lightning, and purple penny loafers. He also has a paper-like outline. At the end of the routine, the dancer reverts to his starting wardrobe.

Panda Version

DontStopMeALT Coach 1

The dancer is the panda from previous Just Dance titles, including C’mon, Timber, Happy (as a background character), and I Gotta Feeling. In the beginning of the song, he is not wearing anything but a pink bandanna. He then gains a top hat with crown on it and unbuttoned vest, which change their color scheme according to the dancer that belongs to the backgrounds displayed, with his neutral outfit's color scheme being a purple vest and a blue hat.

Background

Classic

The background begins with a black starry backdrop and piano keys, complete with a spotlight shining on the man. The scenery swoops in his sleeve, exposing the man's second design and a sunny day on a black and white checkered floor. Swooping forward, the scenery contains broccoli, flowers, ladders, pointing fingers shooting to the sky with rainbows, and a few butterfly hot air balloons. It then raises up to an opening stage curtain. The curtain opens up to a content-faced sun with seashells and starfish swooping inward. Afterwards, a piano spiral comes in, with a few decorated joyful live action animals floating in mid-air along with bananas and clocks. After this repeats, the background has the floating animals now bouncing on drums along with a giant crown shining in the background. Once this is over, a butterfly guitar shoots through the sky, leading back to the faced sun. The piano spiral comes in once more, and finally going back through the sleeve, to the area that the song starts at.

Alternate

The song starts with a statue of the Just Dance logo that is illuminated by two lights on the ground. The brightness of the light will flash and change according to the Panda's movement. When the chorus starts, the back ground changes, with background containing the Just Dance logo and backgrounds from previous songs from previous games of Just Dance, these are (not in order): Gangnam Style, Chiwawa, Teacher, All About That Bass, Fun, William Tell Overture, Hey Mama, Pound The Alarm, Starships, No Control, Birthday, The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?), Boys (Summertime Love), Drop the Mambo, Circus, Get Lucky, Dark Horse, Built For This, I'm An Albatraoz, This Is How We Do, and Born This Way. The song ends with the dancer back to the original place, with the statue becoming a collage of backgrounds. At the end of the song, the background dims.

Gold Moves

Classic

There are 3 Gold Moves in the Classic routine, all of which are the same.
All Gold Moves: Point forward while shaking your head.

Alternate

There are 4 Gold Moves in the Panda Version:
Gold Moves 1, 2 and 4: Raise both your arms up to the left while bending your legs.
Gold move 3: Do a wave with your hands.

Trivia

  • This track was used as the opening act for the Ubisoft E3 press conference to promote Just Dance 2017.
  • This is the second Queen song in the series, after Crazy Little Thing Called Love; it is later followed by Another One Bites The Dust on Just Dance 2018.
  • "Sex" is replaced with "race", but appears to be fully censored in the lyrics.
    • However, "sex" was not censored when it was used at the Ubisoft E3 press conference.
  • In some screenshots, the second version of the coach has a light blue faded outline instead of a paper-like outline. Besides, his outline is white-and-purple and thick on the menu instead of paper-looking.
  • In the E3 preview, C2's pictograms have the same colour as C1's. In the final copy of the game, C2's pictograms are red.
  • The coach's silhouette and background were used to tease the game via social media.[4][5]
  • The emblem from the song's cover art is used in the routine.
  • The second coach's tank top was taken from One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks).
  • The background was shown as a teaser on #June13.
  • The background appears in Wherever I Go.
  • The song's alternate routine is the fourth routine to feature a panda, after C’mon, Timber, and I Gotta Feeling. It is followed by Adoration To Happiness, Daddy Cool and The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody).
    • However, this is the first time where the panda coach appears as the one from an alternate routine instead of a classic one.
  • The coach in the Panda Version's hat is a crown, which is a noticeable Easter Egg because the crown could be referred to Queen.
  • When the Alternate version is unlocked on 7th Generation consoles, the tagline is "Never say no to the Panda!", as a reference to the famous Egyptian commercials that aired in 2010.
  • The Alternate coach was going to have a blue, glowy outline instead of a paper-like one. This Beta element is shown in the Beta menu icon.
  • When Don't Stop Me Now was re-added on Just Dance Now along with the first release of Run the Night, September and Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae), the song didn't appear in the Songs A-E section, nor in the Recently added section and in the Solos playlist.
    • This was later fixed when the song was re-added again for the carnaval season.
  • During the chorus, you can see the dancer lipsyncing the song.
  • Don't Stop Me Now is the only song in the series to be removed and re-released on Just Dance Now for three times.
    • The first one was on October 20, 2016 to celebrate 2017's release, and it was removed after one week.
    • Then, it was released for the second time from December 28, 2016 to January 4th, 2017, to celebrate the New Year.
    • Finally, it was definitively released on April 27, 2017.
  • The costume for the Classic routine required twelve days to be created, due to the huge variety of fabrics and weaves that compose it.[6]
  • The golden avatar has no diamond around the eye.
  • Don't Stop Me Now is one of the songs selected for the digital qualifications of Just Dance 2017 World Cup.[7]
