The dancers are both men wearing single-colored shirts under their black and white striped prisoner outfits. P1, who resembles Elwood Blues, wears orange and P2, who resembles Joliet "Jake" Blues, wears yellow. At certain points during the choreography, the prison uniforms flash with various bright colors. They also wear navy blue fedoras, sunglasses, and yellow boots. Both of them have a sky blue outline.
Hold My Hand
There are five dancers in the alternate mode, in order being male, female, male, female, male. They all wear similar suits to the classic mode. In addition to the similarity, they also wear fedoras, sunglasses, and black boots. The middle dancer is seen with the upper half of his suit pulled down, wearing a blue tank.
The background is outside a prison facility with garbage cans; sometimes, trumpet players pop out from them. There is also a rope hanging from the building, which is likely how the dancers escaped the prison. Spotlights can also be seen, along with the lit windows right behind the dancers which are moving and criss crossing. At the end of the song, the entire background spins around.
The Classic routine has 2 Gold Moves:
Gold Move 1: Move your arms in an inverted circle. Gold Move 2: Hit your elbow down. P1 raises his left knee. P2 jumps first then does it. These are the final moves of the routine.

The song's Hold My Hand routine is the only one in Just Dance 4.
This is the first song to have five coaches shown in the routine. However, only two are playable.
In the Dance Quests for this song, it asks for different dance styles on each console. On the Wii, it's Energetic, on the Xbox 360, it's Exhausted, on the PlayStation 3, it's In Rhythm, and on the Wii U, it's Poser.
The Hold My Hand routine contains a heavy amount of scored moves, counting some of the smallest movements multiple times in a row.
P2's avatar is often confused for the third coach from Gangnam Style.
Their skin colour isn't really white; it points to a pink palette. This is due to the coaches wearing much white.
The avatar seems to represent both dancers, as they look similar to each other.
The part of the choreography at 0:47 in the video below doesn't score points on the Xbox 360, but it does on all motion control consoles.
In the icon of the alternate mode, the dancers are seen to be wearing handcuffs that link to the other dancer. This is not the case in the actual routine.
Unlike previous Hold My Hand routines, this had multiple different coaches hold each other's hand rather than just two.
P2 wears a big pillow under his clothes to resemble John Belushi, who used to be chubby.
