The dancer is a woman with short magenta hair in a bob, turquoise pants, aqua platform booties with yellow bows on them, and a multi-colored poncho, which is pink, neon blue, and yellow.
The dancer is standing on a checker-style platform with different shades of red. A large red spotlight shines in the background. Photographs of the dancer ruining various dance routines in the same game also rain down, including those of Good Feeling, We No Speak Americano, and Cercavo Amore.
There are 4 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Moves 1, 2, and 3: Lift your right arm and leg, and point your right hand to the right. Gold Move 4: Put your hands beside your head and spin your head in a circle. This is the final move of the routine.
Want U Back is the second routine in which images of past dancers appear, after Teenage Dream.
Want U Back appears in Cher Lloyd’s music video for Oath.
In the downloadable version of Want U Back on Just Dance 4, the line "Thought I needed to upgrade" is misinterpreted as "So I needed to upgrade". This was not the case for the Wii U version.
In the Wii U version of the routine, the final lyric of the song reads "Just sound like a helicopter/Brrrrrrrrrr...". However, in other versions, it reads, "Does this sound like a helicopter?/Brrrrrrrrrr...".
On all the successive games, the lyric is shown as "Just sound like a helicopter/Brrrrrrrrrr..." for all consoles.
