The coach is a woman with orange curly hair. She wears a golden yellow fringe dress with a pair of light green pumps.
In the remake, the coach now has a completely different color scheme. She now has red hair, an orange and red fringe dress, and a pair of blue pumps.
The background is a stage with stage lights and light beams, giving it a show girl stage feeling. In the Xbox 360 versions of Just Dance 3 and Just Dance: Greatest Hits, a city is visible.
The background in the remake looks more like in Just Dance 2, but the city from the Xbox 360 background can be seen.
There are 9 Gold Moves in this routine: Gold Moves 1, 3, 5 and 7: Spin in a clockwise direction. Gold Moves 2, 4, 6 and 8 (Not Counted On Just Dance 2) Not: Spin in a counterclockwise direction. Gold Move 9: Put your hands up. This is the final move of the routine.
Proud Mary appears in Puppet Master Mode. Here is the caption attributed to her dance moves:
The 8th Gold Move Is Not Counted On Just Dance 2
Proud Mary and Ninja Re Bang Bang hold the tied record for the most gold moves in one routine, with a total of 9 Gold Moves (Gold Move 8 is not accounted for score in Just Dance 2).
Worryin’ is misspelled as worry in the first time it appears in the lyrics, keep (from Proud Mary/keep on burnin’) is misspelled as keeps and if you got no money is misinterpreted as ’cause you got no money.
Proud Mary is the second song with a shortened version that starts in the middle of the song, after Take Me Out.
Proud Mary has one of the most dramatic tempo changes in the series. After spending over a minute in a slow tempo, the song quickly speeds up.
