Johnsen is best known for being the lead singer of the Norwegian teen punk band The BlackSheeps.

Johnsen was born on 4 July 1994 in Nesseby, located in Finnmark, Norway. She is an ethnic Sami and the daughter of Sami children's author Signe Iversen.

The BlackSheeps were formed in 2008 while its members were attending school in their hometown of Nesseby.

The band later performed at MGP Nordic 2008 and won the competition. "Oro jaska, beana" went on to win Song of the Year at the Spellemannprisen Awards and peaked at number-one on the Norwegian singles chart.

In 2011, the band were announced as one of the competing acts in Melodi Grand Prix 2011 with the song "Dance Tonight", where they placed second. They later split up the same year.

In 2013, Agnete competed in the second season of the Norwegian music TV-competition Stjernekamp, where she placed second in the finale against Silya Nymoen.

In 2014, Johnsen was announced as one of the competing celebrities in the tenth season of the Norwegian version of Dancing with the Stars, called Skal vi danse? (Shall we dance?).
