Sometimes during a live show, the lead singer/performer invites a random person from the audience to join them on stage, usually for short mutual singing or performance. (Example)
Is there a word for the person being invited?

There’s not a specific word for that person—other than perhaps a “fan”—that I’m aware of. However, to point out something that really bothers me, in your sentence you used the word “them” as apposed to him or her—“to join them on stage.” I know that using them or they to mean a single person of unknown gender is all but absolute these days, but it is very incorrect to do so. This is due to the feminizing of the English language. In fact, according to American Standard English (the most correct form of English in the world today), if a person’s gender is unknown, the correct or “default” word is he or him. It may be politically incorrect, but it’s linguistically correct!
