Senegal football superstar Sadio Mane inspired his side to secure a second straight Africa Cup of Nations final after seeing off Burkina Faso 3-1 in Yaounde on Wednesday.
Abdou Diallo, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Mane all scored in the second half to secure a 3-1 victory.
Africa's top-ranked national team, Senegal will find out its opponents in Sunday's final on Thursday, when host Cameroon takes on Egypt in the second semi.
"We dedicate this win to our people," said Senegal coach Aliou Cisse.
"We are really satisfied this evening. Our objective is to win the trophy because that is what the boys deserve given everything they have put into this."
Cisse's side had two penalties awarded in the first half only for the Ethiopian referee to change his mind both times following a video assistant referee (VAR) review.
However, it went ahead just after the midway point in the second period when Paris Saint-Germain defender Diallo popped up in the box to produce a striker's finish.
The second arrived on 76 minutes as Mane provided a superb assist for Gueye, also of PSG, to score, and Mane completed the win late on after Blati Toure had pulled a goal back.
Senegal's two possible final opponents are the most successful sides in AFCON history with 12 titles between them, while the Lions of Teranga are still searching for their first continental crown, two and a half years after losing to Algeria in the final in Cairo.
"We knew it was not going to be at all easy to get to two straight AFCON finals, but the most important for us now is to go all the way and win it, whoever we come up against," said Mane.
Senegal's opponents here could not be underestimated.
Burkina Faso has shown itself to be a talented young side and one driven by the desire to give joy to supporters in a country reeling after President Roch Marc Christian Kabore was overthrown in a military coup last week.
That happened to a backdrop of a terrorist insurgency in the landlocked country, and their coach, Kamou Malo, talked of the events giving his team "added motivation."
It showed plenty of fight and matched its opponents for long spells, but it did not trouble Chelsea's Edouard Mendy in the Senegal goal often enough.
Mendy's opposite number, Herve Koffi, was stretchered off half an hour in after landing horribly as he went up to punch the ball clear in an aerial challenge with Cheikhou Kouyate.
Referee Bamlak Tessema initially gave a spot-kick before changing his mind after a VAR review, as Kouyate was able to resume but Koffi could not.
"There is nothing to suggest he is seriously hurt, but he is undergoing further tests just so we can be reassured," said Malo, who said his side had enjoyed "a wonderful adventure."
Referee Tessema also pointed to the spot in first-half injury time when a Gueye shot struck the arm of Burkina Faso's Edmond Tapsoba in the area, but again he changed his mind after a review of the images showed the defender's arm was in close to his body.
The breakthrough arrived with 20 minutes left, Kalidou Koulibaly trying an acrobatic attempt at a corner and inadvertently setting up Diallo to score, beating substitute keeper Soufiane Farid Ouedraogo.
Senegal's pressing made the second goal as Mane got to the byline and set up Gueye, who just beat Bamba Dieng to the finish.
It was always going to be a huge ask after that for the Stallions against a Senegal side who had conceded only once in the whole tournament.
It did reduce the deficit eight minutes from time as Issa Kabore's cross was diverted in by Toure's knee.
Mane had the final say, though, bursting clear in the 87th minute to make it 3-1.
He will find out Thursday if he will come up against his Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and Egypt in the final.
