In the main series of Just Dance there have been elements that have not been in the final game. Here is a list of the ones that are known.
A few images show the Fame dancer with a different appearance. Instead of the big top and sweatpants the dancer now has, the clothing consisted of a sparkly hat, a sparkly top with a F on it; stylized in the font of the Fame logo, sparkly shorts, and sparkly shoes. Her hair was also shorter instead of being big and curly.
Just Dance 2Edit
Hot Stuff ChoreographyEdit
The Hot Stuff choreography originally has a different set of moves, first having the guy on the left and the girl on the right. The beginning was different , with the most dramatic move getting changed being the move where they use their arms and fists. In that they had them going in the same direction unlike in the final version where they go in different directions. There was also another move where the girl is acting as she's fishing for the guy's heart. This was replaced with the dancers rowing towards the other spot. (i.e. Right to Left and Left to Right)
Hot Stuff colorsEdit
The original colors for Hot Stuff were red and purple. This was changed in the final version to orange and yellow. However there was another version shown in a gameplay video where the dancers were purple. The purple kind later appeared in the Promiscuous Mashup in Just Dance 3.
Unknown DancersEditIn one of the E3 trailers there were 2 dancers that appear that are not in the final game. One of them having a big green and pink dress while the other having a checkerboard sweater and a hat. The checkerboard sweater and hat dancer appeared in various Just Dance 2 things and even appeared on the Europe cover of Just Dance 2. A picture of the dancer appeared in a background that looks similar to Baby Girl which could mean that Baby Girl was originally meant for this dancer or was originally not on the tracklist and was replaced by the song the checkboard sweater and hat dancer had. Another dancer with a blue jacket and hat appeared in a Backstage video on justdancegb's channel and has also appeared in various Just Dance 2 stuff, including an appearance on the Europe cover of Just Dance 2. The dancer with the blue jacket and hat also has a different color scheme where the jacket was red instead of blue.
It was suspected that the checkboard sweater and hat dancer was for Let's Get it Started by The Black Eyed Peas due to the costume resembling what will.i.am was wearing the music video. The dancer with the blue jacket and hat was suspected to be I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas due to moves resembling moves from a Live Performance of the song. However, both of these have not been confirmed or have any other sources indicating that those are the songs for those dancers.
Tidbits of the choreo the checkerboard sweater and hat dancer dances to appear in various videos. The most can be seen herewhich also shows choreo for the blue jacket and hat dancer.
Walk Like An Egyptian ChoreographyEdit
In one of the E3 trailers, the Walk Like An Egyptian showed a different choreography where the dancer was moving her hands right and left and letting go of them at the top of her head. It is unknown when that move would appear in the dancer but it was cut in the final version.
Different Scoring SystemEdit
In one of the E3 trailers as well as a gameplay video, the scoring system was different. It showed Soul Bossa Nova with a similar but vastly different scoring system. It showed a similar sphere from the final version but there was a circle in it instead if an outline for scoring and would get bigger or smaller depending on the ratings. The pictograms, ratings, the On Fire feature, and the bunch with the player's name and score all had a different look and there was a very short outline that appeared. It is unknown what that was meant for.
In gameplay videos for Just Dance 2, the font for the player's name and score were bolder. The scoring system would automatically appear instead of scrolling to the amount they have so far, the gauge was darker and the lyrics came up differently. The bolder font also appeared in some dances of the Gamescom trailer. There was also 2 sounds for the On Fire feature that were taken out in the final version. 1 sound would be for the small flame and another for the big flame. It was also more bunched togetheer and darker.
Y.M.C.A. was shown being announced on many websites including Ubisoft's info page however it is not in the actual game. During the development it was taken off Ubisoft's info page. Y.M.C.A. eventually made it into the Just Dance series appearing in both Just Dance Kids & Just Dance 2014's (The former having a cover version of it)
Just Dance 2 DLCEdit
Crying Blood Gold MovesEdit
There were originally 4 gold moves for the 2 poses that appeared twice in the gameplay video. This was changed to 2 where the Gold Move appears the 2nd time the 2 poses are done.
Futebol Crazy colorsEdit
The colors for Futebol Crazy were orignally blue and purple. This was changed to yellow and green.
Skin-To-Skin background Edit
In a screenshot of Skin-To-Skin it showed there being no pink rectangles on the floor. They were added into the final version.
Just Dance 3Edit
What You Waiting For choreographyEdit
The choreography for some parts of What You Waiting For were changed. The first one was during the chorus and the other during the bridge.
In the Manual for the PS3 & Wii versions, an image of the Song Collection shows different poses for some of the songs. Specifically they are Price Tag, Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now), Think, Da Funk, Jamaican Dance, I'm So Excited, Tightrope (Solo Version), and Pata Pata. All of the poses except for Think & Jamaican Dance are used in the Xbox 360 version of the game.
The image also shows Dynamite having the dancers switch spots than in the final version (i.e. The guys on in the middle and the girls in the sides) as well as Think & Lollipop switching places than where they are in the actual game.
On a site that did some of the graphic designs for Just Dance 3, 2 backgrounds are shown that are not in the game. One is in a mall while the other is in a purple area with pink & yellow triangles. It is unknown whether or not these were the originial backgrounds for some songs or if they were backgrounds for songs that got cut if there were songs originally planned for the game. It is also unknown if these backgrounds were for Just Dance 3 as Mister's background is also in the bunch of backgrounds that were shown.
Just Dance 4Edit
In the files of the game a Mashup that looks like it was designed to be for Istanbul was cut from the game. It is unknown why it was cut.
The Just Sweat mode was greatly changed in terms of apperance. For one, the timer was shown to be in the middle of the left side instead of being in the bottom-left corner. The accuracy line and font for the words Cool & Intense were also changed. The ending screen was also different, having a diffferent look for the Sweat Drops, the Cool,Intense,Warmup, & Cool Down logos as well as showing the Intensity and Accuracy of the workout. The Warmup & Cool Down logos were also purple, instead of being yellow like the Intense logo.
Dancer Card AvatarsEdit
Originally, the avatars for the Dancer Cards (Even though Dancer Cards weren't shown at the time) and for the game were little tiny boxes. Each box was able to show 1 face of a dancer from the game. Eventually, these were scrapped and were replaced with bigger, simple 2-D avatars.
A picture of a website showing off Just Dance 4 that had the dancers of Disturbia, Airplanes, and Ain't No Other Man (Airplanes having a blue clothing scheme and Ain't No Other Man having a different look from the top) was shown, but the picture has since been removed.
So good was going to get the part.
Just Dance 2014Edit
Treasure was sappost to in the game but it's getting moved to just dance 2017. A number of unknown dancers appear in various pieces of Just Dance 2014 material. One is a dancer with a disco ball for a head, another a guy with a red suit and red hair, another a guy with a hat, another a guy with a mohawk and another a girl with a jacket around her waist.
Just Dance DJEdit
In the E3 trailer, a mode called the "Just Dance DJ" was going to appear in the game. It appeared to be a mode where a person could freestyle to songs in the game and switch songs in between. It was not seen after this and was removed for unknown reasons.
