You expect us to tell you what to play? Dude, you know your ability better than anyone else and you damn sure know what you want to play more so I'd just turn away from the pit and get practising a piece you can play and want to play. Sorry if that comes across harsh but it's best for you in my opinion.

i think you should play a good song a song like metallica songs or bon jovi songs because they are good songs and i think your instructors will like them too because everybody loves songs like that when you have to play song

Play something easy that you can look real good playing - I swear you're more likely to impress if you play something easy really well than if you play something insanely hard mediocrely (i made that word up).
Main setup:

ESP Eclipse
PRS Torero SE
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster head, 2x12 cab
FX: Crybaby Slash Wah, Ibanez TS9x, Mesa Boogie Throttle Box, Boss TU-2, BF-3, DD-3, PS-6, RC-3, etc.

I had a choice between something very hard that I had mastered, or a shred-blues improvisation. I chose the improvisation, and got a HUGE applause, despite the fact I was merely playing an A Pentatonic with extra notes here and there.

The simpler way will yield a better response from people who don't play an instrument. If you're playing to people who know their stuff, I take it they'll appreciate the technical aspect of a harder song choice, so take your pick.

Play something with more technical chords than open A or something like that. Some teachers just want to see you play musically advanced stuff. Well that's how my teachers are.
