"Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)" by A. R. Rahman and The Pussycat Dolls ft. Nicole Scherzinger is featured on the Best Buy edition of Just Dance 2, and also on Just Dance: Summer Party, Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited.
Appearance of the Dancer
The coach is a woman with long purple maroon hair in a side ponytail, silver earrings, a violet-red and purple short sari with blue borders, and purple patent stiletto knee-length boots. She also has purple maroon lipstick.
In the remake, she has a different color palette. She's glowing and her skin is black at some points. Her clothes are colored differently: they are deep red, gold and cyan instead of violet-red, blue and purple, respectively. The gold borders have a glittery and sparkling effect. Her hair is light blue like parts of her outfit.
The background is a small town with shops and power lines outside in the night. Behind the dancer is a small truck vehicle with a light that flashes. Also, a shooting star appears in the sky at some points. In Greatest Hits and Best Of, confetti rains down. The background looks like a street in India.
In the remake, the background is dramatically different. The routine now takes place in front of a large group of buildings, with light patterns flashing. At one point, the background goes mostly dark except for the light patterns. It all looks like a modern place in India.
There are 2 Gold Moves in the routine, both of which are the same:
Both Gold Moves: Quickly throw your arms out. The second gold move is the final move of the routine.

- This is the first Bollywood song to feature a non-duet dancer outside of an alternate mode; all the other songs considered Bollywood or Indian feature male and female duets. The second instance is Beware of the Boys and the third is Lean On.
- In the lyrics, chase (from the line I'll never lose the chase) is misinterpreted as chance. This error was fixed in the Just Dance Now remake.
- If you look closely at the pictogram sprite in Just Dance Now files, you can notice that some of them are still pink and they show the moves in a different way.
- The Just Dance 2/Greatest Hits/Best Of versions show "nothing" spelled in two ways: "nothing" and "nothin'".
