Stuttering / lagging games on the Wii
We have a softmodded Wii for a while now, at least two years. My partner likes to play Just Dance games, but suddenly Just Dance 2015 was stuttering / lagging this week. It happens for a few seconds and then the song continues. Then after 30 seconds or a minute later it lags/stutters again for a couple seconds. She tried a different Just Dance game, 2014, but the same issue occurs. Never happened before. The external HDD is running the games, and it's far from full. Could it be an issue with the wii console or could it be the external HDD? Any tips/solutions?

It could be either the HDD or it could be your system mod, perhaps one of your IOSs is messed up. Has this issue occurred in the past or is the first time you've encountered it? If it has occurred before was it with the same game? Basically I'm wondering if the game ever worked right.

No, didn't happened in the past, this is the first time. These two just dance games have the issue, even though the games were working fine all the time before. I haven't changed anything, well i put wifi on to view homebrew apps, but didn't download anything. Maybe i should try more games to check if the issue is everywhere.

In this particular case I would be looking at the harddrive, since your explanation of "all of a sudden", is pretty much how things go with any media storage. Disks degrade, hard rives start to fail, and probably whatever else they come up with in the future will keep us coming back to buy new or more, by design or not. If you have other devices like flash drives or other, newer hard drives, you can transfer the media onto, and test, that is my personal recommendation for where to start.
I did CHKDSK on the external hdd and after a long time windows found 2 issues, a bad sector was one of them. It was repaired according to windows so now i am going to try again to see if it worked.
