"Starships" by Nicki Minaj is featured on Just Dance 2014, Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancer


Starships coach 1 big

The dancer is a woman that wears a purple dress with yellow sleeves. There are stripes on one sleeve and dots on the other. On her waist, she has a big blue ribbon. She has pink-and-blue hair with pink, blue, and orange flowers on it. She also has black high-heels, and blue socks that have the appearance of liquid flowing on them. Her makeup is extremely visible. Her glove has a ribbon on it that has a similar color to the glove itself. She closely resembles Nicki Minaj.


The dancers are a couple dressed in a 20s British style.


P1, a woman, wears a gray dress, a red headband, a pink necklace, maroon heels, and short pink hair.


P2, a man, wears a pink shirt, a red tie, maroon striped coat, short red pants, pink shoes, and short red hair.



The level takes place inside the mouth of what seems to be a monster. The background is a blue sky with clouds and unrealistic (almost cartoony) metallic-looking rainbows with the colors (in-order) yellow, orange, pink, purple and darker purple. The dancer is standing on a flying pink candy-resembling platform that, like the rainbows, looks metallic-looking. When the chorus starts and "Starships" is sung the platform flies upwards to a pink sky with hot air balloons and blimps. When it reaches the top there is a background similar to the one at the bottom. It then floats down again and the process repeats itself once. After it repeats itself the platform flies towards the screen and out of a monster's mouth. When "We're higher than a ..." is sung and the dancer moves far away from the monster. The background turns into a passage with multiple flashing and colorful lights; most likely trying to be like in the music video. After the line has been sung thrice the dancer will once again end up on the platform and go back into the mouth and back to the normal blue sky. All of this repeats but when the bridge of the song begins the platform will instead fly into outer space after the background with many colors. It then flies up extremely fast passing the blue sky and the red one; it is also extremely fast when the platform comes down. The last verse is just like the others.


The background appears to be a stage with spotlights and a silver platform behind it. It looks nearly identical to Happy's Sing Along background.

Gold Moves


There are 4 Gold Moves in the Classic routine:
Gold Moves 1, 3 and 4: Bend your knees and pull your arms downwards and then spin your head in a clockwise direction.
Gold Move 2: Put your hands on your chin like a "Y" or "T" while leaning downwards.


There are 3 Gold Moves in the Charleston routine:
Gold Move 1 (P1): Slap P2's rear end sending him flying towards the right.
Gold Moves 1 and 2 (P2): Put your left hand on your chest while pointing towards the right diagonally.
Gold Move 2 (P1): Put your hands up because P2 catches P1 with an invisible lasso.
Gold Move 3 (Both): P1: Put your hands on your hips. P2: Put your left hand on your left hip and put your right hand up. This is the final move of the Charleston routine.

Sweat Mashup

The Sweat Mashup only has one Gold Move.

  • Gold Move: Flap your hands up and down. (Ghostbusters (Sweat))

Sweat Mashup

Starships has a Sweat Mashup on Just Dance 2014 that can be unlocked for 5 Mojocoins.


Party Master Mode

Starships has a Party Master Mode. Here are the captions that appear in order of appearance:

(Captions in bold indicate a Song Switch.)

Appearances in Mashups

Starships appears in the following Mashups:

Dance Quest


  • Pine Cone


Starships appears in Party Master Modes. Here are the captions attributed to her dance moves.

  • Cheery Jump
  • Cute Kicks
  • Girly Walk
  • Like A Flower
  • Losing My Mind (sometimes misspelled as Loosing My Mind)
  • Kawaii Up (sometimes misspelled as Kawai Up)
  • Modeling
  • Model Walk
  • Overpowered Mill
  • Rolling For You
  • Running Weird
  • Smart Lolita


  • This is the sixth song by Nicki Minaj song in the series, after Super Bass, Beauty And A Beat (as a featured artist) and Pound The Alarm. It is followed by Bang Bang (second time as a featured artist), Hey Mama (third time as a featured artist), Side to Side (fourth time as a featured artist), Kissing Strangers (fifth time as a featured artist) and Swish Swish (sixth time as a featured artist).
  • The official clean version is used, so the words "B**ches," "S**ts," "Motherf**ker" and "F**k" are censored. Unlike the official clean music video, "Motherf**ker" is completely censored.
    • In the E3 trailer, Ubisoft used the explicit version, meaning that "motherf**ker" can still be heard.
    • "B**ches" is still almost audible.
  • This was originally going to be a DLC for Just Dance 4 along with Candy, but both were taken out and put in Just Dance 2014 for more excitement.[citation needed]
    • If this song was put in Just Dance 4 as a DLC, Nicki Minaj would've been the fifth artist with three songs in the same game along with Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Sia and Pitbull.
  • The resolution goes down during the flashing lights background on YouTube videos because the colored background can cause people with epilepsy to have seizures. To raise it, it has to be 480p or higher.
    • The resolution does not go down in the game and on mobile phone though.
  • Not many dance moves of the alternate choreography give points due to the fact that they use only their legs a lot. This goes for both motion controller and camera consoles.
  • This song's classic coach won in the Most Stylish Female Coach category on the first Just Dance Awards. [1]
  • While doing Gold Move 2, if you get it, the YEAH! it will look more faded than the others.
  • If you look very closely, the classic coach bears a striking resemblance to Nicki Minaj especially when the chorus of the song is danced.
  • During the Party Master Mode, if the player who holds the gamepad switches to another song (Follow The Leader is one of them), the routine can unexpectedly stop.
  • The Party Master has a possible total of 13 Gold Moves, thus making the routine the one with the highest number of Gold Moves.
  • The Classic coach appears as a cameo in Blurred Lines's background.
  • The Classic coach also appears on the PAL cover of the game, at the right.
    • However, her hair is combed neater, the colors have swapped sides and the flower crown only covers the left of her head.
  • The abduction effect at the start and the end is recycled from Crazy Little Thing.
    • The sound effects are removed in Just Dance Unlimited.
  • Ever since the game was first released an image of the gameplay for this song appears on Just Dance Now in the image "Follow the dancer as if he's your reflection in a mirror" and "Grab your phone and dance!"; however, the song was not released at that time.
  • This coach makes a cameo appearance in the background of Uptown Funk in the second verse.
  • In Just Dance Now, the Charleston version has some edits that make some parts brighter.
  • This is one of the songs to have a Dancemas Ornament.[2]
    • Also this song alternate and Jailhouse Rock alternate are the only alternate routines in Just Dance Now who says the alternate theme instead of be simply be labeled as "ALTERNATE".
  • A girl cosplaying this coach appears on a promotional video for Just Dance Now.[3]
  • This Background reappears in Don't Stop Me Now (Panda Version) and Don't Worry.
