This was the singers fault for not reacting appropriately in the first place by not asking for security to put some space between this drunken woman and the band.
Stopping the song and calling security would probably turn the audience (and venue) against the band for spoiling the party atmosphere. I think Aeolian nailed it - preventing the lip kiss without creating bad vibes:

Deflect and defuse, make a joke out of it, keep it light, make it part of the show. But keep it professional and somewhat above a drunken frat party.
