"In the Hall of the Pixel King" by Dancing Bros. was going to be featured in Just Dance 2017, but the routine was scrapped for unknown reasons. The song made a return in Just Dance 2018 as an official track with an entirely different choreo, dancer, and background. The song features a remix of In the Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg and Ode to Joy by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Background

Just Dance 2018

The routine takes place in a level in a platformer video game. The routine has four different backgrounds. The background starts inside at an underground level. As the tempo speeds up, the level takes place on a grassland level, and pixelated coins can be seen floating in the sky. Halfway into the routine, the dancer rides on a skateboard, then the background changes into a cloud level in which the camera pans up vertically. The skateboard then disappears into a cloud, where then there are cloud platforms.

As the track changes to Ode to Joy, the dancer is seen hopping vertically through cloud platforms.

As the track changes back to In Hall of the Mountain King, with a faster tempo, the background changes into a level that's completely made out of ice. In the end, a treasure chest is seen along side the dancer, meaning that the dancer won the "game".

Throughout the routine, various stuff like the already mentioned coins, enemies, and obstacles appear.

The background is predominately based off of 1980s 8-bit arcade games. The man is seen in a dark cave with stalactites falling. Two Jack-o-Lanterns arise from spurts of lava, who are defeated by the man's musical notes, which he shoots from his arms. The background turns green with metal pillars and pink flying dragon heads. Based on a Screenshot of gameplay. The background turns into a purple wall with orange and black rocks on the outside.

Gold Moves 1 and 3: Put your left hand on your hip and your right fist up. Gold Move 3 is the final move of the routine.
