Poland's Eurovision 2020 star Alicja Szemplińska highlights some of the world's crises in her song “Empires”. Men build great empires through their work and toil. But it’s these same people who can actually tear it down through their indifference to the environment, and each other. Some have called this a modern Bond anthem and others an epic and dramatic ballad. We review all the chatter and share our thoughts.
