American Idol's Top 10 Theme Will Be...

Anybody know a ritual to ward off Disney princess ballads — as well as soundtrack cuts from Armageddon, Titanic and The Bodyguard?

TVLine has learned exclusively that the theme for American Idol‘s Top 10 performance telecast (next Thursday, March 19 at 8/7c) will be “Songs from the Movies.”

The guidelines for film-related ditties in previous seasons have been more flexible than Olympic gymnasts — pretty much encompassing any track that’s been featured in a prominent film or appeared on a major motion-picture soundtrack.

During the live episode, one contestant will be sent to the guillotine based on America’s votes from tonight’s “Get the Party Started” installment – check out song spoilers here — while Jennifer Lopez will perform “Feel the Light” from the movie Home.

Following the March 19 telecast, Idol moves to a Wednesdays-only schedule (combining performance show and elimination), beginning March 25.

Idol‘s two-part season finale will air Tuesday, May 12 (9/8c) and Wednesday, May 13 (8/7c).
