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. Before Just Dance 2015, if the Classic routine was a Duet or Dance Crew, a random Solo dancer takes the Duets/Dance Crew’s place; or sometimes nothing replaced the dancers. This was changed in Just Dance 2015, with the reintroduction of Duet Mashups, which were only in Just Dance 3 before, and the introduction of Dance Crew Mashups. Also, Just Dance 2015 introduced themed Mashups, in which the dancer selection would be determined by a specific category, such as Pink Hair.

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. None of the Mashups in Just Dance 4 have Gold Moves.

Songs with Mashups in this game are:

PS3 & Wii U Exclusive Mashups

Wii U Exclusive Mashups

Just Dance 2014

The background for all Mashups in Just Dance 2014 is very bright. There are dancers from previous games in the background, and the center of the "wheel" is a dome which represents half disco ball. The ground is full of slots where the current dancer dances on. Gold Moves have returned, but only on certain Mashups.

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

The Mashups in this game are:

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. The color of the background is different everytime a Mashup is played. This is not the case for You’re On My Mind, in which the background color changes every transition. This feature would later be in every Just Dance 2016 and 2017 Mashup.

Songs with Mashups in this game are:

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, a concept used in You’re On My Mind. 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’s. 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.

The Mashups available in this game are:

Trivia

  • Party Rock Anthem has the most appearances in Mashups, with 21.
  • Crazy Christmas is the only coach to appear in at least one Mashup in every Just Dance game since Just Dance 3.
  • Da Funk (Sweat Mashup) is the only Mashup in the series that does not repeat any dancers, except for starting and ending with the same dancer.
  • Baby Zouk's Mashup has the least number of dancers, with only four routines being featured.
  • In Mashups in Just Dance 4, sometimes the dancers' reflections tend to exceed the boundaries.
  • In Sweat Mashups in Just Dance 3, 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 2014 and Just Dance 2015 , mashups are pieced together in-game with each dancer except 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.
    • This is due to the game unloading the background. The game will always place a blue screen behind routines.
  • In Just Dance 2015, the following glitch may occasionally happen: Monthly Mashups may be unlocked at a cost of 20 Mojo Coins, which is the cost of a Mojo Coin-unlockable Mashup.[citation needed]
    • In addition, by accessing the Mashup via the JD Wall, the game will freeze after a few minutes.[citation needed]
  • 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 technical limitations, and this only happened to You’re On My Mind.
    • Despite this, the background color will change each time a Mashup is being replayed.
      • This was later fixed in Just Dance 2016.
  • Starting with Just Dance 2016, Mashups no longer began and/or ended with the original dancer, even if it fits the theme.
  • In Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance 2017, the background may glitch on the Wii: when this happens, the moving hexagons at the sides have a rounded effect, as if the screen was seen from a sphere.
  • In Just Dance 2017, Mashups are only available on the 8th-Gen consoles, PC, Nintendo 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 Just Dance 2017 for 7th-Gen consoles, the Mashup album coach from the 8th-Gen versions of the games is shown instead.
