McGill conceded 35 points after missing a snooker eight times, then Wilson went in-off twice as fortunes fluctuated.
Wilson fluked the green and struggled to contain his emotions as he edged the frame 103-83 after 62 minutes.
Seven-time champion Stephen Hendry, commentating on BBC Two, described the frame – the longest of the championship – as “the most bizarre end to a World Championship match I’ve seen”.
Wilson, who will face Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final, said: “It’s a cruel game. I’ve dreamt of this moment but I didn’t want to get there like this.
“I held myself together right up until the end of that decider. It’s just mad what can happen on a snooker table.
“I felt like it was one of the best semi-finals ever at the Crucible. I felt it was such a good standard, I’m just annoyed that it ended that way.”
McGill added: “I feel as though I played really well. I don’t feel as though I have done anything wrong. I feel like it has been stolen from me, not by Kyren but by the snooker gods.”
Also vying for the finals are Ronnie O’Sullivan and Mark Selby, with the latter pulling away after a 76 break that gave him a 2-frame lead.
In total, the Crucible will welcome around 300 fans in total for the weekend’s play. This is being seen as a sort of pilot program for sports in the U.K. and could lead to more socially distanced fans as soon as October.
