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: 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:
Proud Mary and Ninja Re Bang Bang hold the tied record for second 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). The record holder for most Gold Moves is Boogie Wonderland (Xbox 360 version) with 10 Gold Moves.
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.
