Leave it to dry for a while. Maybe somewhere warm or with a fan blowing on it. Cross your fingers and see if it is fixed in a day or two.

I have a limited understanding of circuits and the like, but the moment you spill water or electronic equipment touches water you should immediately power off. Do not power on until you KNOW there is no chance of water remaining. Although the keyboard may have seemed try to you before you turned it on, there could have easily been a thin film of it on the actual PCB (the circuitry under the keys), thus creating a short when you plugged it back in.

I know this same concept applies to cell phones and the like so it just be similar in this situation. I advise you to leave it unplugged and drying for at least 1 1/2 days, upside down over a paper towel or something like that. However, it seems like you may have already done permanent damage to it :/
