Chris Brown will remain on supervised probation even though he's been doing well with his sentence in a 2009 assault case.

Brown has finished half of the six months of community service he was ordered to perform after pleading guilty to beating then-girlfriend Rihanna the night before the Grammy Awards three years ago.

Brown was ordered to serve five years on probation for the attack. A judge said he didn't think it was unreasonable for Brown to remain under supervision until he completes more of his community service hours.

During a short hearing on Thursday, Brown's attorney asked that the supervised probation be ended because of the singer's good behavior. The Grammy-nominated R&B singer was not present at the hearing. Another progress hearing was set for July 10.

Brown is set to perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. It will be his first appearance at the awards show since the assault case.

His multi-hit album, "F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies) is up for three Grammys, including best R&B album.
