"When he rips [his shirt] like he's the Hulk – I love that," Murgatroyd told PEOPLE with a grin after the show while standing beside Chong.

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will blog for PEOPLE about competing with Big Time Rush band member James Maslow during the show's 18th season.

Last week was rather stressful for both of us. In our Michael Jackson number, everything was sort of coming together, but then on the day we were doing our walkthrough with the band and our dress rehearsal, they took our stage away.

We had a catwalk and a round stage and they took that away because they realized they couldn't get it up in time. So all week long, we were practicing and had marked out the floor and width and depth and stuff and used choreography that would fit the catwalk.

It's crunch time on Dancing with the Stars, and Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow are one of four couples heading into next week's fight for the mirror ball trophy after surviving elimination during Monday night's semifinals.

"I knew we could do it," Murgatroyd, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after the show, reflecting on her and Maslow's first rehearsals at the beginning of the season.

Added Maslow, 23: "We couldn't have predicted the path of who would have been voted off each week. I think because it's been so strange and seemingly random, we were confident in what we could do, but you can never be too confident in staying. So we've got to keep that humility, and we've got to do better than we've done each week and that's all we can do."

We've got two dances this week, so it's kind of crazy. The first one is the Viennese Waltz, and I am absolutely loving this. It's so beautiful and romantic, and it's such a nice change from that sexy samba last week. Fans wanted fun and sexy, and they definitely got that.

I think that dance is about as sexy as it's going to get for us this season. It's nothing that has never been done before. Shirt rips happen all the time on Dancing with the Stars, and garter belts get worn all the time.
