The song's iconic saxophone hook, originally positioned in the outro, nearly became an afterthought.

"[Ganacci] just gets it. I've never seen someone gyrate and dry hump a turntable quite like him. From the moment we saw that iconic Tomorrowland video we knew we just had to get him on our staff. Dancers will have to be extra prepared this year as this is by far our most world renown judge to date."

In addition to dancing on stage, Ganacci has also been known to sometimes play and make music.
